The values that we are fighting for don't belong to one party or one group. They're not black or white, or Hispanic or Asian or Native America, or gay or straight, or disabled and not disabled—they are American values. They belong to all of us.
And I am absolutely positive that we are not as divided as our politics suggest. I still believe we’ve got more in common than our pundits tell us. I still believe in you. And I’m asking you to keep believing in me.
Ohio, I’m asking you for your vote. And if you’re willing to stand with me and work with me, knock on some doors and make some phone calls for me, we’ll win Franklin County again. We’ll win Ohio again. We’ll win this election again.
—President Obama at The Ohio State University
