Closing Arguments: Republicans, Democrats make their case to Americans ahead of midterm elections

With the midterm elections just days away, voters are preparing to choose who will control Congress, as well as state and local offices across the country. Read below the closing arguments from candidates running for Senate, Congress, governor and mayor.

“This is about a simple choice — between sanity and chaos, and whether we want to continue to live in a democracy where our Constitution and country come first. It’s about ensuring our children can grow up in a state where they don’t have to worry about putting food on the table or getting the health care they need.”

“I want to be mayor of Los Angeles to help restore the Angeleno spirit that has been weakened by our failing systems. I want to make L.A. a city where every resident can have a great quality of life. This isn’t just another stepping stone where I bury the best interests of my constituents because I’m worried about securing the next political office. Being mayor of Los Angeles is the only job I want; Angelenos deserve a mayor who is 100 percent dedicated to advancing their interests not placating their political cronies. Our great city of Los Angeles deserves a government that isn’t corrupt and gives all residents the fair opportunity to succeed.”

“The choice in this election is whether we will build on the progress we’ve made, or revert to the failed policies that made our economy less fair, our future less bright, and our democracy at risk. I am running for reelection to pursue a new American project that unites the country over the politics of the moment around real ambitions: Revitalize the middle class by further strengthening our supply chains, reviving American manufacturing, and leading a global transition to clean energy.”

“When I get to the Senate, I’m going to secure the border and fix our immigration system. I don’t care about being politically correct, I care about doing the job. America needs comprehensive immigration reform.”

“I am a political outsider, not a career politician. I promise to be a voice for the middle class, not special interests or criminals. My commonsense message is resonating and momentum is growing every day as we head toward victory.”

“Whitmer has had her chance, she’s made a mess of the state, and is now asking for a four-year contract extension. On November 8, the voters of Michigan have a chance to give her a performance review and deny her application for another term. In the interest of common sense, I hope that’s what Michiganders will do.”

“I have always looked out for Nevada’s law enforcement. I’m proud to say that in this campaign I’m not only endorsed by Police Chief Jason Soto in his first-ever Democratic endorsement, but by the Nevada Police Union as well as the Nevada Association of Public Safety Officers and the Nevada Law Enforcement Coalition, representing 19 law enforcement and public safety unions in Nevada and thousands of officers across the state. That’s because I always have their back.”

“I believe that you cannot care more about winning the argument than you do about solving the problem. Granite Staters do not care if a solution is a Democratic or Republican idea — they just care about getting results. And that is the example I follow, working across the aisle on Granite State priorities, fighting to lower costs for families and communities, and working to keep our country safe, secure and free.”

“At my age, I may seem an improbable leader to shake-up a broken system and an imperfect agent of big, bold change. But that is exactly what I am and who I am. Even more, I am a fed-up daughter of Oregon who refuses to give up on the state I love without one hell of fight. Join me. Together, we can recapture our maverick, independent spirit, put the people back in charge and rescue our beautiful state. If it can happen anywhere, I know it can happen here in Oregon.”

“Whether it’s rising crime or rising costs, we need leaders who actually understand the problems we’re going through here in Pennsylvania, and who have the experience and the ideas to do something about it. I know we need to tackle crime because I live in a community with a serious crime issue. I know that costs are too high because I see it with my own eyes when I’m at Costco. I get these issues because I’ve lived these issues.”

“I am in Congress for a simple reason: to fight for your right to pursue the American Dream and bring home the resources to give you the opportunity to go to school, work and raise a family. I am here for you, and humbly ask for the opportunity to continue to serve you in Washington. After all, my story is the story of most of us in South Texas.”

I’ll fight to not only keep jobs in Wisconsin, but to create good-paying union jobs in every corner of the state. I’ll protect reproductive freedoms and bodily autonomy, so that health care decisions stay between a woman and her doctor.”
