[applause] i was down in casper georgia in south georgia a week ago. they lost their hospital in
7:01 am
october. it just shut down. middle of a pandemic in the t. wealthiest country in the world, the hospital closed . and now see the people of cuthbert, they have to drive all the way to columbus to get to an emergency room. we don't have to accept that, georgia. we've lost nine hospitals in this statein 10 years . but if you send me and reverend warnock to the senate we will deliver the resources toreopen those hospitals . we will deliver the resources that will serve every community in this state because healthcare is a human right, not just a privilege
7:02 am
forthose who live in the right part of the state . health, jobs and justice for all the people. let's talkabout jobs for a moment . for eight months, the united states senate blocked the direct release that people need. four months straight, david perdue was adamant that he opposed the newest checks for the people . and then he changes his tune six days before an election. georgia deserves senators who will have our not just when it's about to be time to face the people at all times if you send me and reverend warnock to the senate we will deliver the $2000 stimulus checks that people need to
7:03 am
stay in their home, that families need to stay in their . we have so much good work to do, garden city. i want you all to feel in your heart a sense of optimism and excitement about how much good we can do when we win these races. we can pass the most ambitious infrastructure, jobs, clean energy plan in us history. we can create tenders of thousands of jobs across the state upgrading our public schools, upgrading transit and transportation, connecting communities in georgia and connecting georgia with the rest of the self. we can make america a number one producer of clean energy in the world andgeorgia the number one producer of clean energy in the american south . we have so much good we can dotogether . we can raise theminimum wage to $15 . we can expand the pell grant program that no georgian has
7:04 am
to take on a penny of debt to get a degree from a public college or from an hbcu. there is so much good that we can do. health, jobs and justice for all the people. let's talk about justice fora moment, garden city . you all may not know this but my mother came to thiscountry as an immigrant when she was 23 years old . alone as a young woman. takes some courage to operate your whole life and move to the other side of the planet and start over and she came here because she believed in the ideas this country stands for. now, let me be real clear ds
7:05 am
that doesn't mean that she harbored or indulged kind of fantasy aboutamerican history .es that doesn't mean that she didn't recognize how much further this country had to go . but she came here because she believed this country was on a journey of progress. towards fully realizing the very best of our founding ideals. equality in god's eyes, equal justice for all. see, our constitution already agreed guarantees equal protection under the law. but when ahmaud arbery is shot to death on camera in glenn county georgia and the local authorities looked the other way becauseahmaud arbery is a young black man, that makes a mockery of equal protection under the law .
7:06 am
so garden city, are you ready to fight to pass a new civil rights act that will secure equal justice for all no matter the color of our skin, no matter our socialclass ? [honking] and at this moment, when the president of the united states calls up george's election official and tries to intimidate them. to change the results of the election. to disenfranchise georgia voters. to disenfranchise black voters in georgia who delivered this state for joe biden and kamala harris.
7:07 am
that is a direct attack on our democracy and if david perdue and kelly loeffler had one piece of steel in their spine, oneshred of integrity they would be out here defending georgia voters from that kind of assault . and so garden city, not only will we pass a new civil rights act, we will pass the new voting rights act to secure the franchise for all, to the voter suppression of federal crime. garden city, i want you to feel your power right now. donald trump is leaving, garden city. [honking] georgia voters sent donald trump packing,you did that . and now instead of just the latest daily outrage, the
7:08 am
latest scandal, the latest offense, we can elevate our eyes to the horizon again and dream about what is possible. garden city, i want you to dream with me. garden city, i want you to believe we can build a society where we don't accept that violence and poverty and racism are necessary because they are not. believe in the vision john lewis gave us a beloved community. believe we can reach higher and higher heights,garden city but with victory on tuesday , with victory on tuesday let us send this message. about what georgia stands for . i'm asking you to work. for these next two days. not for my sake, not for the glory of a political party but because of how much good you can do for the people. so garden city, savannah, are you ready to work?
7:09 am
are you ready to knock on doors? are you ready to call your neighbors? are you ready to get everybody out to the polls to win the senate races ? are you ready to send to the united states senators washington? it's an honor to welcome kamala harris here. i want to thank you for your support. i love you so much. let's win on tuesday and make history . iq. [honking] >> hello and welcome. help us keep this state for everyone and stop the spread of covid-19.

[music]
7:11 am
>> hello, savannah georgia. [honking] hello garden city. wow. it's a beautiful day in savannah . and you all look like you're ready to win an election . somebody ought to fix that. listen. i've been traveling allacross this state . but i'm always grateful to be home .
7:12 am
through pressures and palaces though we may roam. be there so humble there's no place like home. and i want to welcome to the coastal city my brother from anothermother , what about the next senator from the great state of georgia, jon ossoff? [honking] i'm deeply honored to be running alongside him. he is deeply committed to the work that we must doin this moment . and i want to welcome to the coastal city of person who has long served the people,
7:13 am
first as an attorney general and then a united states senator. and now the next vice president of the unitedstates of america , kamala harris. i can't wait. until this graduate of an hbcu, howard university, i'm going to give you your props . i can't wait until kamala harris gets to be the united atdeciding vote in the united states senate. [honking] now, the only way that happens is you have to make sure that you send
7:14 am
rafael warnock and jon ossoff to the united states senate. are you ready to make that happen ? [honking] now can i talk? to the folks in my hometown. the coastal city. you know why we're here. hear me clearly. we are counting on you. we need savannah to show up like it's never shown up before. do you believe we can do that ? [honking] it's getting late.
7:15 am
election day is tuesday. it's almost midnight. in the garden of good andevil . and the ghosts of cynicism and indifference and division are trying to win the day, but i've got a feeling that the coastal city is ready to stand up and send one of its own tothe united states senate . [honking] it's been 150 years . 150 years since we've had georgia senator from savannah . well, i think it's abouttime .
7:16 am
so call everybody you know. that's right, everybody. i've got some folks down here who haven't been able to worship in person in church in a long time . right here.because all these family members, all your friends, call all the folks you like, call the folks youdon't like but you try . all the folks who ou money. and tell them what i really need you to do is to vote . it's so critically important. sedona can make thedifference in this election .we've done amazing things on november 3. the rest of the country didn't see you coming. we want to say to themwelcome to the new georgia .
7:17 am
but here's what we cannot do. we cannot afford to rest on the laurels of that achievement . it's going to be close. and georgia, savannah georgia , garden city georgia can make the difference. and i'd be deeply honored if the people in the city where i was born and nurtured and raised would be the defining city in this election. are you ready to push us over the top? now, i'm asking you to do this but i'm very clear. i'm not asking you to do this
7:18 am
for me because this election is not about me . it's not about jon ossoff, it's about access to affordable healthcare and a livable wage. ndit's about the dignity of work. it is about voting rights, it's about civilrights . it is about saving the planet, about clean air and clean water. it's about the work wemust do in this moment . my name is on the ballot and on the books but this is about you. it's time you had a senator whosethinking about the people of georgia . and i promise you today, you send me to the senate i'll be thinking about you every day. i'll wake up with georgia on my mind . because i'm home.
7:19 am
you know, when you're growing up you take the place where you grow up. you take things for granted. i thought the rest of the world was as beautiful as savannah . the older i get, the more i appreciate this city. with its verdant town squares . call stone streets, oak trees two and 300 years old. bending over the streets. with spanish moss making them look like old greenhouses. getting the love of horticulture and history to the city . this is where istarted . i am an example and an iteration of the american dream.
7:20 am
i was born in poverty. one of 12 children in my family, clearly muscles read the bible, be fruitful and multiply. and they took it very seriously. on number 11 out of 12 the first college graduate inmy family . i often say that i went to morehouse college on a full faith and scholarship. that means i didn't have enough money for arthe first investment so anybody who went to college me like me on a faith ownership? somebody gave me some hell grants and some low interest student loans. that's good federal public policy . i was an upward town student
7:21 am
on the campus of savannah state. where i spent my summers, i graduated from pehigh school. but through hard work, grit and determination i was able to go on to college ndand earned several graduate degrees including a phd degree . and then 15 years ago i returned as pastor of ebenezer baptist church where martin luther king jr. served and the spiritual home ofjohn lewis . and now i'm running for the united states senate against the wealthiest member of congress, only in america is my story even possible.
7:22 am
i was with my mother earlier today .. she's 82 years old. she grew up in wake forest georgia. do you know where that is? way across georgia. in the 1950s, she spent her summers as a teenager picking somebody else's tobacco and somebody else's cotton but because this isamerica , the other day the 82-year-old address that used to pick somebody else's cotton picture son to be a united statessenator . and now i'm running for the united states senate because i believe in the american promise.
7:23 am
i know that it is alive and well but it is slipping away from too many of our children and if you send me to the united states senate i will never forget that little boy who grew up in the housing projects. i'll be standing up for him and for all young people not just in the urban environment in rural towns all across georgia. young people and struggling families who need a chance . you will have a united states senator whose thinking about you . and so you must show up. make some noise if youalready voted . [honking] now if you have not votedyet, that's all right . there's still time. it's okay.
7:24 am
just show up on tuesday. election day. make a plan to vote right now . make a plan to vote. and if you've already voted, thank you. we are grateful. but your job is not done. until you tell everybody you know to vote. send them to vote and there you will know where you can vote, where your precinct is. go to vote but you're not done until you ever tell everybody you know to vote because the stakes are too high. we got work to do. we've got to get control over this virus. we got to get this vaccine distributed. safely and efficiently. we've got to get covid relief
7:25 am
to ordinary people and that begins with the $2000 stimulus that we should have passed already. we've got to reopen our businesses safely. we got to get our schools open and our children returnedback to a safe environment . we've got to make sure that everybody has access to affordable healthcare . and we got to stand up for our front-line workers. we got to stand up for our healthcare workers. we've got to stand up for our police officers and fire persons . we got to stand upfor those on the front lines .
7:26 am
during this pandemic we've been calling folks essential workers. well, if they are essential workers, ought to pay them an essential wage. [honking] provide for them essentialbenefits . we need infrastructure investment in our country. we need to repair our roads and our bridges. we need green energy andgreen energy jobs .n this we've got to provide covid relief. why not put people back to work? stimulate the economy in the short term and get us ready for leadership in the long-term. the 21st century like the20th century must be the american century . and that is the work that we
7:27 am
can do. and we must do. but we cannot do it if we are divided. there are folks right now who are trying to divide us .in people who have no vision traffic in division. they don't know how to lead us though they tried to divideus . and that's what's going on right now. i'm running against the unelected center of georgia, kelly loeffler. she was appointed. it's clear the people of georgiaare disappointed . have you noticed, have you noticed she has not even bothered?
7:28 am
have you noticed she has not even bothered to try to make a case for herself? she has not even made a case for why she should be elected to that seat. and that's because kelly loeffler knows she's got a lot of explaining to do. she's been there for 10 months and she's done a terrific job enriching herself. she heard about the coronavirus pandemic, she wasn't thinking about folds who were sheltering in, she was busy sheltering her investments and then when it came time to give over 600 dollars in unemployment insurance she said she saw no need, that it was counterproductive. i guess it was not counterproductive for her to meprofit off the pandemic. who profits off the pandemic?
7:29 am
where did they do that? i'm from the, we say where did you learn that? profit off of the pandemic. and so because she knows that she doesn't have a case to make for herself , she's been busy trying to malign me. she's been busy trying to make you afraid of me because she's afraid of you. she's afraid that you understand that she's been using her office to enrich herself so have you noticed she's spent the whole campaign running the most negativecampaign in georgia history .she's been busy as we say in church, callingme everything but a child of god . lying on the. misrepresenting my record.
7:30 am
we say in church, scandalized my name. that's all right, my mama told me that is not what they call you. it's what you answer to. and in just a few days, she can call me senator rafael warnock. [honking] i am running for the senate. it is the continuation of my life's work. i was talking about healthcare before i was running. and when georgia refused to expand medicaid in the state i went to the governor's office said mister governor, you must expand medicaid and i know a lot of activists organized in demonstration in the governor's office and the
7:31 am
capital police came and said you've got to get out of the way or we will have to arrest you and whatthey didn't understand is i had already been arrested . my mind and my imagination had been captivated by this idea that if my slavery is uncovered that i unprotected and though they parted us away that day i went to the capital police, they were doing their job and i was doing my job. then in 2017 when they were giving us to trillion dollars tax giveaways i went again. to the us capital. and because i have not been elected us senator yet, i made my argument in the rotunda of the capital. again the capital policecame and said you can't stay in the rotunda . i wasn't mad how they were doing their job, i was doing my job . they said we will give you three warnings and we will have to take you away and they took us away that day. well, i'm feeling in a few days i'm going to meet those
7:32 am
capital police officers again, this time it will not be taking me to central booking. they can help me find my new office. at the next united states senator . and so savanna georgia, we got work to do . don't sleep through this moment. let's get the job done, my dad used to wake me up every morning at dawn. he said boy, you can't sleep late in my house. cannot. get dressed. put your shoes on. get ready. i said dad, get ready for what, it's saturday. he said i don't know, i'll tell you about that later. you just be ready, whatever it is nick sure you're ready. i'm glad my dad told me be
7:33 am
ready because in this moment i want you to know that i'm ready . i'm ready to be your next united states senatorfrom the great state of georgia . so let me ask you a question savanna georgia, are you ready ? are you ready for affordable healthcare? [honking] are you ready to make sure everybody has a livable wage ? are you ready to stand up for our children? are you ready to get the job done ? well get up and get dressed and put your shoes on and get ready. because if we fight together, we stay together, if we vote together, if we prayed together, if we showup together come tuesday wewill make history together but more importantly we will win the future for all of our children . god bless you . get up. get dressed.
7:34 am
put your shoes on. get e]ready. [honking] >> hello savanna. hello georgia. and hello my fellow americans . i am doctor erica russell petty, a pediatrician here in savanna and president of the georgia state medical association. i like many of you and glad that 20/20 is over.
7:35 am
i am blessed to still be here and looking forward to great things in 21. one of the great things that 2020 helped propel is black lives matter movement. hopefully everyone now understands that we just want lacked lines to matter just as much as every otherlife . from the medical viewpoint, our organization has been fighting for over 125 years to get equal access to and implementation of medical care for blacks and other minorities . with a disproportionate number of beds and
7:36 am
hospitalizations blacks and minorities, covid has shed light on the negative health care outcomes that have played our nation due to systemic racism and disparities in our healthcare system atlarge . we have had record numbers of new cases of covid here in savanna and the state of georgia each of the last three days. more than any other day since this pandemic began. now, with the vaccines beginning toroll out , there is hope that with wearing face masks, washing hands and social distancing, we can get control of covid-19.
7:37 am
though we know dthat disparities in access to health care have always existed in our country, we want to specifically emphasize the difficulties surrounding getting more minorities into the healthcare profession. it recent statistics show that minority cases have better healthcare outcomes when they are able to access healthcare professionals who look like them. in addition, recent statistics show that the number of black people admitted to medical school have not improved inthe last decade . this is of course, this course only compounds the problem. we are grateful to now have an administration willing to listen and to help.
7:38 am
there are also broader issues that have disproportionate healthcare implications for minorities including climate change, neighborhood zoning and access to quality nutrition. some of these issues have already begun to be addressed through legislation like the affordable care act which needs to be strengthened and expanded. if you want to make this administration able to implement these changes, if you want to help, you have to get out and vote tuesday, january fifth, 2021 . i'm sure each of you knows someone who has been affected by covid.
7:39 am
my family is no different. at one point this summer my dad, two of my uncles, my aunt and my oldest brother were all in 4 different jacksonville hospitals at the same timewith covid . i would see patients in the office. i would dressed in full ppe and go out and see the actor patients who needed to be tested. then throughout the day i would call each of my family members in the hospital to check on them . i would call each of the hospitals to talk to the enurses to go over their status. and i would call my mom was home with covid to check on her. i thank god that they only. [honking] but we know there are so manywho did not . though many of us celebrated
7:40 am
the birth of jesus, there are many who must now celebrate the lives of many who did not make it to this day. i do believe that america can again pray and allow god to work through all those in elected office, that they will do what is right for our nation. our nation will begin to heal . indeed, i do believe that with joe biden and kamala harris at this feelinghas begun . and now, as a black female myself, it is my great pleasure and my distinct honor to welcome the first black female vice president
7:41 am
of these united states of america. kamala harris. [music] >> hey savanna! hey dj nice.
7:42 am
oh, it's so good to be with you. happy new year, everybody. happy new year. to all my sisters and brothers, happy new year . you know, although i have to tell you, i was here in georgia and another part of hathe state earlier this month or last month but i said you know what, the new year, i think 20/20 is not over until we get through the end of tuesday, january 5. then we can really celebrate the new year. so 20/20 is not really over until we get through the end of tuesday, january 5 to the united states senate a son of savanna, rafaelwarnock and a son of georgia , jon ossoff to the united states senate. that is the task before us.
7:43 am
ross, and in the hands of you as the voters of georgia to do what is not only in the best interest of the people of this beautiful and great state but my extension what you will do for people all around the country. the people for whom you may never meet. people who may never knowyour name . but because of your activism, because of your voice, because of your fight, they will forever benefit and their lives will forever be better because here's what i'm going to tell you. i was elected to the united states senate four years ago. it was actually a bittersweet night, the same night donald trump was elected's president so there you go i will tell you i've been in the united states senate for four years.
7:44 am
i was elected as only the second black woman in the history of the united states senate to be in that chamber. [honking] and i've seen what happens there. it's part of why i am here in savanna today is sunday. the sunday before thetuesday where you are going to make history . part of why i'm here today is to share with you the experiences i've had in the united states senate. where i have seen that body of 100 people, 100 americans make the decisions that impact s,over 320 million americans. those 100 individuals who each have a voice that can change the course of the history of our country. i was there that late night
7:45 am
into the early morning where there was a vote on one of the most significant pieces of public policy legislation to ever get ourcountry . because of barack obama and vicepresident joe biden when they passed the affordable care . that was also called obamacare. i was there to witness the debates that occurred where people were trying to make politics out of your public health. where they were determined to try and get rid of any accomplishment of the first black president of the united states. and therefore trying to get rid of a healthcare policy that brought healthcare to over 20 million people who didn't have .
7:46 am
who said we're going to get rid of the ban on pre-existing conditions because people who have diabetes, who have lupus, who have high blood pressure not be denied coveragebecause of a pre-existing condition . a law that said it is wrong. it is unjust to charge women more for healthcare because their bodies were designed to reproduce the human race. [honking] and i was there then on the floor of the united states senate and it must have been2:00 in the morning . early morning hours where the consequence of the most important piece of legislation would be determined. and i witnessed them etthen the power of just one center in the united states senate. when the late great john mccain said no you don't.
7:47 am
you remember that? you remember that? and savanna, you have a decision to elect 2 united states senators. that is the power that is in your hands. to elect 2 individuals who are outstanding leaders in rafael warnock and jon ossoff . i have spent time withthem . we have talked, we have drank together. we have talked about the state of our country, the future of our country,the promise of our country . and they have talked to me about the state of georgia . they had said to me you need to know what'shappening in our state . they said to me these are the needs of the people.
7:48 am
these are the needs of the children. these are the needs of small business . these are the needs us small people. these back to these two men are. and look at that in the contextof the history of the state of georgia . look at it in the context of the year where folks were deprived of the right to vote . who were deprived of full status of citizenship. look at it in the history of georgia. where one of the greatest american heroes who was now one of the greatest savanna ancestors, john lewis shared his blood on edmund pettis bridge. a great georgian for the right to vote and he had to shed his blood because the forces were so powerful and violent in trying to deny people the right to full citizenship p.
7:49 am
the right to vote. let's stand for the recent history where we know there are not powerful peopletrying to mess with folks right to vote. we will be talking about governor stacy abrams . [honking] let's talk about more recent history. when joe biden and kamala harris were on the ballot and they were still messing with folks right to vote in november trying to make it difficult,trying to make it confusing, trying to deter people . but the people of georgia said no you don't. no you don't. the people of georgia understood and then look at
7:50 am
the most recent history. which is that after you elected, you turned georgia blue, you elected joe biden president of the united states. you elected the first black woman in the history of our country to be vice president of the united states. and they have the gall to suggest you didn't know what you were doing. you must have gone in a way that was illegitimate. and faith filed six lawsuits. not one, not to, six lawsuits trying to challenge your voice in that election and they failed every time.
7:51 am
and the people's voice remains standing. and then, the president of the united states, the current president of the united states called the senate race in georgia. this senate race in georgia illegitimate. he called it illegal and invalid. illegal and invalid. suggesting that the people of georgiaare trying to commit a crime . and then let's go back to more recent history which is yesterday. have you all heard aboutthat recorded conversation ? [honking] it was certainly the voice of desperation. most certainly that. and it was a bald, bald-faced
7:52 am
, bold abuse of power by the president of the united states . [honking] and i raise all that, the people and the leaderscan hear me right now on this sunday, new year's weekend . two days before the election and i thank you for that. and i raise all this to remind us, to ask a question always when we see these powerful people that are trying to make it difficult, trying to make it confusing, trying to invalidate our voice. whenever we see this happen i think it requires not only action but it requires a question . why are such powerful people
7:53 am
trying to make it difficult for us to vote? i think we know the answer. it'sbecause they know our power they know our power . they know when we vote, things change. they know when we vote, we win. so that's what's before us yet again and before you, the leaders of georgia . to say that you will not be silenced. you will not be sidelined. your voice will not be overlooked. that you will fight because you know that when we fight for our country and the legitimacy of our democracy, we win.
7:54 am
