Watch live as I speak at the #CADem19 convention from San Francisco! #BlueWaveRolling -NP

Good morning, California Democrats! I’m happy to join our San Francisco delegates to welcome you to our great city.

As a former chair of the California Democratic Party, it is a homecoming for me to be with you at the state convention. #CADem19 #BlueWaveRolling
As Speaker of the House, it is my privilege to bring you the gratitude of our magnificent House Democratic Majority – a majority that California Democrats delivered! #CADem19 #BlueWaveRolling
And it is my honor to bring you greetings from your entire California Democratic Congressional delegation – which I remind you is 46 Democrats, to only 7 Republicans. #CADem19 #BlueWaveRolling
Thanks to the hard work of each of you here today;

Thanks to the extraordinary leadership of the grassroots, filling town halls and phone banks and canvasses with the power of their stories;

#CADem19 #BlueWaveRolling
Thanks to your determination to win, California helped elect a transformational class with seven Freshmen: @GilCisnerosCA @TJCoxCongress @JoshHarder @KatieHill4CA @MikeLevinCA @KatiePorterOC and @HarleyRouda.

#CADem19 #BlueWaveRolling
And with these magnificent Californians leading the way, we won a net gain of 40 seats in the most gerrymandered and voter suppressed campaign arena in history. This would not have happened without you, our VIPs: our volunteers in politics.

#CADem19 #BlueWaveRolling
Now, we must keep the Blue Wave Rolling.

We must defend and expand our majority in the House of Representatives and win back the U.S. Senate.

#CADem19 #BlueWaveRolling
Across of the ballot to the top of ticket, we must win – and we must elect a Democratic president of the United States.

And aren’t we proud of all of our democratic candidates for president? #CADem19 #BlueWaveRolling
Our grassroots organizing in 2019 is vital to victory. We need to lock in our 2020 win by this November.

#CADem19 #BlueWaveRolling
In this Congress, we will observe the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, establishing women’s right to vote. We will do so with 106 women in the House – 91 of them Democrats.

#CADem19 #BlueWaveRolling
I am proud to say the Democratic Majority in the House is more than 60 percent women, people of color and LGBTQ. #CADem19 #BlueWaveRolling
We are in the majority because we ran on a For The People agenda, and we will deliver on it:

Lower health costs – by lowering prescription drug prices and protecting people with pre-existing conditions.

#CADem19 #BlueWaveRolling
Bigger paychecks – by rebuilding the infrastructure of America, in a green, modern way for the 21st century;

Cleaner gov't– passing our HR1, the #ForThePeople Act to reduce the role of money in politics, strengthen voting rights & clean up corruption in Washington.

With Democrats holding the Majority, we will legislate, and we will also investigate and litigate to protect our democracy. #CADem19 #BlueWaveRolling
In legislating – for the safety of our children and our communities, we have passed commonsense, bipartisan gun violence prevention bills to strengthen background checks!

#CADem19 #BlueWaveRolling
For the well-being of women and working families, we passed the Paycheck Fairness Act – equal pay for equal work!

And we passed a strong, long-term reauthorization and update of the Violence Against Women Act.

For the future of our young people:

•We passed the Save The Internet Act to restore #NetNeutrality.
•We passed the Climate Action Now Act, recognizing the existential threat that the climate crisis poses to the health of our communities & the future of God’s creation! #CADem19
For expanding freedom in our country:

•We took historic action to pass the Equality Act – to end discrimination against LGBTQ Americans!

•And next week, we will pass the American Dream and Promise Act – to protect TPS recipients and our patriotic young Dreamers!

With the power of the gavel, we will continue to legislate to make progress for the American people.

But we will also investigate to defend our democracy, and to hold this President and his Administration accountable! #CADem19 #BlueWaveRolling
Six House Committees, spearheaded by CA’s own Maxine Waters & Adam Schiff, w/ Jerry Nadler, Elijah Cummings, Richard Neal & Eliot Engel, are exposing the extent of the President’s wrongdoing & corruption – strengthening our hand to challenge the Administration in court. #CADem19
We are winning in the courts, with two resounding court victories last week affirming Congress’ subpoenas must be obeyed. #CADem19 #BlueWaveRolling
This week, we heard directly from Special Counsel Mueller.

In his report, Special Counsel Mueller warned us in the starkest terms: that there was an attack on our elections, and an attack on our democracy itself. #CADem19 #BlueWaveRolling
President Trump calls this a hoax. Why? Why is it that the President won’t defend our democracy from this foreign threat? What is the president covering up?

The Mueller report revealed that President’s campaign welcomed Russian interference in the election! And the report lays out 11 instances of possible obstruction of justice by the President of the United States.

#CADem19 #BlueWaveRolling
As Mueller said: “If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.”

We must not only investigate to stop Russia’s continued intervention in our elections. We must investigate the President welcoming of Russia’s assault. #CADem19
It is our patriotic duty to push back on the Trump Administration’s undermining of America.

America is our constitution, with a system of checks and balances and our freedoms – which the President dishonors. #CADem19
America is a nation of immigrants, who constantly renew America – which the President disrespects.

America is our beautiful natural patrimony, from sea to shining sea and beyond – which the President degrades with his denial of science. #CADem19
America is our values – which the President disgraces by adding trillions to the national debt instead of investing in our children’s future.

#CADem19 #BlueWaveRolling
In the darkest hours of the American Revolution, Thomas Paine wrote: “The times have found us” – and today they have found us again.

We do not place ourselves in the greatness of our Founders – but we do place ourselves in the urgency we face in securing our democracy.

This isn’t about politics. It isn’t about partisanship –– Democrats versus Republicans.

It’s about patriotism. It’s about the sanctity of the Constitution. And it’s about the future of our nation.
We will go where the facts lead us. We will insist on the truth. We will build an ironclad case to act.

Because in the United States of America, no one is above the law – not even the president! And President Trump will be held accountable for his actions!
In the Congress, in the courts, in the court of public opinion, we will defend our democracy. #CADem19 #BlueWaveRolling
And we will do so honoring another guidance from our Founders: E pluribus unum. From many, one.

They couldn’t have imagined how many, or how different we would be. But they knew we had to be one.

#CADem19 #BlueWaveRolling
We will strive to unify, not divide, our country as we protect and defend it.

The times have found us, each and every one of us, to have the courage and the strength to win.

#CADem19 #BlueWaveRolling
Are you ready to keep the #BlueWaveRolling?
Are you ready to defend and expand our House Majority?
Are you ready to take back the Senate?
Are you ready to elect a new president of the United States?

God bless you, God bless California, and God bless America! Thank you.
