Ladies and gentlemen, I have come over here to Brooklyn to ask your help in this campaign. We are waging a campaign to build a stronger country in order to protect our security, protect the future of freedom, and also to move this country forward, provide jobs for our people, get off dead center, and I come over here to ask your help in this campaign in a great Democratic county. Thank you very much. (Applause)
