>> congratulations on a hard-fought campaign. being a coach, you get into a game and you lose -- 20 loses, the other doesn't. -- one team of loses but the other doesn't. you both reach out after that. this is a great country we live in. i talked to senator sessions, he was awesome. he said, i'm all in. [applause] i think his service and what he has done for many years for the state and country. it is hard being in the public life that long. but i know that jeff sessions and his supporters are behind us. we will need everybody on deck. this is going to be hard. but we appreciate your support and we are all on the same team.
[applause] the past year and a half, what is the hardest thing i've ever done, i traveled to every city, town, and crossroads in alabama. i have listened to stories, i listened to it all. i have listened to the concerns of everybody, there are a lot of people hurting. i have been listening. i have not taken anything for granted. i stood in the field with farmers. putting their crops in, back and planting season. a month ago. they are not even planting that crop to feed their family, they are planting that crop to feed our families. it is important we understand that. i want to thank alico for their
support. they have been huge. [applause] i sat with military veterans who simply want their country to keep their promises to them, like the v.a. i have talked to many of them. i met with enforcement officers, firefighters, amulets drivers, -- ambulance drivers, who risked their lives and safety every day to provide help for all of us. in this tough time that we are going through as we speak today with everybody wearing masks one time or another, i have listened to doctors and nurses who have been on the frontline battling this china virus, this unseen enemy, and hospital wards nic units and at his been tough. i have also comforted the jobless.
many places i have been, people have been out of jobs. president trump, who is the best president in my lifetime -- [applause] who, by the way, called 30 minutes ago and wished us luck and congratulated us on what happened today, those people without jobs are worried because they don't know what the future holds and none of us do. but all those stories and 1000 more like them have touched my heart and i promise that your voices and all the voices of the state of alabama will be heard on the floor by the united states senate. [applause] you know, today reminded me of my mom and dad.
both deceased. at a young age, instilled in me the importance of serving others. in fighting for what i believe is right. my dad dropped out of school in 10th grade. to join the military in world war ii. he said, i got tired of following that mule. but at 18 -- think about this -- him and thousands of others men and women in this country and our allies landed on d-day in normandy at 18 years old. he drove a tank across europe, losing friends every day, fighting for every inch, every foot, and every step.
by the war's end, my dad had earned five bronze stars. bronze star is fighting and a major battle. if you win one or two of those, it is special. at 18 to 19, he earned five. he was my hero. [applause] he earned a purple heart, which nowadays is a one million-dollar wound, they send you home. back then, they put him in an infirmary for a month and sent them back to the front lines. he got hit in the back, he had a big hole in his back and asked him, you got it in the back, he said, yes, i was running like hell, my take was on fire. [applause] i can't imagine what that generation did. but throughout this election, i will be fighting for many of the same ideals, same principles, and same god-given freedoms that my father and others like him in
the greatest generation fought for so many years ago. [applause] so now, now we turn our eyes towards our next opponent. >> [inaudible] mr. tuberville: we've got a little over 100 days because this runoff was pushed back. democrat doug jones is running for reelection with a slogan of one alabama. well, make no mistake about it, what he really means is one liberal alabama. in doug jones's alabama, you take your marching orders from joe biden, nancy pelosi, and chuck schumer, and the bartender aoc. all the liberal left.
in doug jones about the alabama, the second amendment is just a thought, it is not in the constitution to them. they are not taking our guns. [applause] in doug jones' alabama, you vote against conservative judges. people that believe in the constitution, believe in this country. he voted against brett kavanaugh. are you kidding me? we have got to have conservative judges in this country to go by the rule of law. [applause] in doug jones' alabama, you don't work for your state in alabama, you don't work for the united states, we spend the first three years trying to impeach the best president we ever had and he voted to impeach him. in doug jones' alabama, the rule of law is mob rule. think about that.
is not law enforcement, it is mob rule. in doug jones' alabama, politically correct is the name of the game. i'm so sick of that. i'm sick of it. [applause] doug jones' alabama is not a conservative state that we love and embrace and defend. it is a liberal fantasy, a little fantasy is what doug jones believes endured -- believes in. he believes in funding planned parenthood but defunding the police. we cannot make it with out our law enforcement. senator whoe have a represents alabama values, not new york values, not chicago values, not liberal democratic values.
we need a senator that believes in our values. it is our mission, our movement, our moment to reclaim alabama senate seat from joe biden, and schumer and pelosi, and put it back in the conservative column. that effort, begins right now, and tonight. [applause] i want to thank all of you for coming tonight. this has been a great night for me or my family, this has been a great night for alabama and the united states of america. [applause] i want to thank everybody here for your support. we have a hard road ahead the next months. i'm telling you, i am not taking any days off in the last 480 and i'm not going to take them off now. [applause]
