Joe Biden

Remarks to an Overflow Crowd at a Democratic Party Rally in Albuquerque, New Mexico

November 03, 2022

The President. Hello, hello, hello. How are you all doing? I'm sorry there's no room inside.

I'm here for an overwhelming reason: You've got the best Governor in America right here, and you've got to reelect her.

Remember, this is not a referendum; this a choice. And the choice is stark between who we are, who she is, and who her opponent is. So let's get going. You've got to show up and vote. We need you to.

I'm going to turn this over to the boss.

Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham of New Mexico. Hey, New Mexico. You braved the wind. You braved—although, it's getting warmer and less windy, but we're no stranger to that here.

You guys are why it matters. You lift your families up. You fight hard for your neighbors and your neighborhood. This is what democracy looks like.

And know this——

Audience member. Joe Biden, can I have a selfie? [Laughter]

Gov. Lujan Grisham. And they know what to ask for. [Laughter]

Know this: This partnership is about making sure that we never forget to stop fighting for each and every one of you.

I love you.

The President. Every time I'd walk out of my grandpop's house, he'd yell, "Joey, keep the faith." My grandmother would yell, "No, Joey, spread it." Go spread the faith. God bless.

NOTE: The President spoke at 3:32 p.m. outside the Ted M. Gallegos Community Center. In his remarks, he referred to New Mexico Republican gubernatorial candidate Mark V. Ronchetti. Audio was not available for verification of the content of these remarks.
