    “I do everything I can for the campaign in Nevada. I volunteer more than 40 hours each week. Every day, other volunteers and I go throughout the city to register voters and knock on doors. Some days I leave my home at 8:30 a.m. and don’t return until 9 that night.

    “But it doesn’t bother me. I will continue volunteering until the last minute of this campaign because I want to see President Obama re-elected.

    “I’ve always said he’s my president. I remind the people I register to look at the health programs the President has implemented. I share with them the benefits I’ve been able to receive, from help paying my hospital bills to free medical attention. I remind people that President Obama is helping undocumented youth who were brought here as children, who only want to study and deserve the opportunity to do so, because they too are the future of our country.

    “That’s why it doesn’t matter to me how many hours it takes. I will work until the last minute for President Obama’s re-election. I will continue to remind Latinos that we need President Obama. He’s our president.”
