Tomorrow we vote.
Our battle is not yet won, as we have much to do tomorrow to turn our base out and take back Ohio.
But as we wait for tomorrow to arrive, I’m reminded of a speech read to campaign workers for President Bush in Ohio on Election Eve in 2004.
“…we in it shall be remember’d; we few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he today that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile, this day shall gentle his condition: And gentlemen in England now a-bed shall think themselves accursed they were not here, and hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks that fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.”
For those fighting the good fight, remember these words as you wake up at 4am Tuesday morning to go canvas one last swing precinct, remember them as you struggle to finish calling one last GOTV list, remember them late Tuesday night when you can turn to your friend, raise your glass, and say, “we did it”.
Now let’s go win this.
