Barack sent me an email yesterday.
He wanted me to be the first to know that he's with Hillary.
Here's the email:
I wanted you to be the first to know:
Today, I'm proud to announce that I'm with Hillary.
I recorded a quick message to explain why. Whether you've been by her side since the beginning or you're new to her team, I hope you'll add your name today and say you're ready to make history with us this November.
I know how hard the job of president can be. That's why I know Hillary will be so good at it.
I don't think there's ever been someone so qualified to hold this office.
She's got the courage, the compassion, and the heart to get the job done. (I say that as someone who had to debate her more than 20 times.)
Even after our own hard-fought campaign in 2008, she agreed to serve our country as secretary of state. I've seen her judgment, toughness, and commitment to our values up close.
And I've seen her determination to give every American a fair shot at opportunity, no matter how tough the fight -- that's what's always driven her, and still does.
I can't wait to get out there and campaign for her. Add your name today if you're with her, too:
[ADD MY NAME]
Together, we'll build on the progress we've made, and we'll win a brighter future for this country we love.
Let's get to work,
