California Presidential Debate Watch Party


Wednesday October 19, 2016

Tonight is one more opportunity for Hillary to stand before a national audience and speak directly to millions of voters about the values that have driven her career, her vision for the future of our country, and her policy solutions to address the problems that keep them up at night.


Hillary has 30 years of experience making a concrete difference for children and families, compared to Donald’s decades demeaning women, not paying federal income taxes and discriminating against people of color, and running a campaign that has failed to offer plans to help working families.


Pure negativity is all Trump has left. Instead of bringing Americans together, Donald Trump decided to end his campaign by going after anyone and everyone who disagrees with him.


This election represents so much more than a choice between a Democrat and a Republican – it’s a representation of values, the kind of leaders we want to see, and the way we want our country to be viewed on the world stage. From the very beginning of her campaign, Hillary has been focused on ideas, not insults – she’s been talking about the diversity that makes our nation great and the ways in which we can work together tackle the big challenges facing our country.


There will be record turnout this election because voters embrace Democrats’ positive vision and see through Donald Trump’s shameful attempts to undermine an election weeks before it happens – and they’re ready to stand up to his divisive rhetoric and reject his dangerous ideas.


It’s never been easier to cast your ballot in California – Californians are already voting, and more will vote in this election than any other in our history. California has record voter registration with more than 18 million, and we could even break 19 million.


New voters are registering Democratic nearly 3:1 over Republicans – that’s because they see our record of fixing our state budget, raising wages, passing equal pay, and expanding health care for children regardless of where they were born.


California Republicans delivered the nomination to Trump, and many candidates for Congress and Legislature supported him even though they knew about his decades of mistreating women, ripping off workers, and enriching himself at everyone’s expense. There’s no excuse for Republicans standing with Trump.


Republicans have shown zero courage in standing up to Trump. Look at Scott Jones here in Sacramento – he was one of Trump’s biggest supporters until video was released showing Trump talking about sexually assaulting women. Jones should have known better about Trump’s disgraceful treatment of women, because he faces his own allegations of harassing women who worked for him.


Voting should be encouraged not undermined with absurd conspiracy theories just because a candidate is afraid he’s going to lose. A study from Loyola University found just 31 instances involving allegations of voter impersonation out of 1 billion votes cast in U.S. elections between 2000 and 2014.


The American people are starting to see through Donald Trump and he can’t handle it. He’s lashing out because he knows he’s losing – and Republican election officials are pushing back..


Trump is weaving a web of excuses and becoming more erratic than ever, inflaming his supporters with dangerous charges that the media is lying and the election might be rigged.


The best way we all can stand up against his outrageous behavior is to vote, and bring all your family and friends with you, so we can have a turnout that shows the world, that this is not who we are. We’ve seen those tactics before, and we will never go back to those days.
