Jon Ossoff: (00:01)
For the people of this state, for all the people of this state. And they will be my guiding principles as I serve this state in the US Senate, ensuring that every Georgian has great healthcare, no matter our wealth, ensuring that we invest in an economic recovery that includes all communities, that rebuilds our state’s infrastructure, that lays the foundations for prosperity in rural Georgia, suburban communities and urban communities alike, and securing equal justice for all, following in the footsteps of leaders who have departed us in this last year, like Congressman John Lewis and C.T. Vivian.
Jon Ossoff: (00:40)
I want to thank the people of Georgia for participating in this election. Everybody who cast your ballot, everybody who put your faith and confidence in our democracy’s capacity to deliver the representation that we deserve, whether you were for me or against me, I’ll be for you in the US Senate. I will serve all the people of the state.
Jon Ossoff: (01:00)
I will give everything I’ve got to ensuring that Georgia’s interests are represented in the US Senate. I want to thank all the volunteers who poured their hearts and souls into this campaign. I want to thank my family for their support and their patience. I want to thank my wonderful wife, Alicia, who as we speak is at the hospital helping Georgia mothers deliver healthy babies, helping save lives.
Jon Ossoff: (01:23)
Let’s emulate the spirit of courage and heroism, of those who have given so much to the health response to this crisis. As we unite as a people to overcome this challenge of COVID-19 and to build a republic that lives up to our highest ideals of equality in God’s eyes and equal justice under the law. Georgia, thank you so much for the confidence that you’ve placed in me. I am honored, honored by your support, by your confidence, by your trust. And I will look forward to serving you in the United States Senate. (Silence).
