“This is our story, our message, our electoral strategy and our moral responsibility. To rebuild a country defined by the decency it offers every proud man, woman or child who is blessed to call this nation home. Where strength isn’t measured by who you prey on, but who you protect. Where greatness isn’t just a show of muscle but of mercy. Where we understand that a nation cannot be powerful if its people are powerless.”
- Joe Kennedy III
