REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT
AT A DSCC EVENT
New York, New York
5:48 P.M. EDT
THE PRESIDENT: First of all, I just want to thank Lise and Mark not just for tonight, but they have been just incredible friends for a really, really long time and they have been there when we were up and they have been there when we were down and everywhere in between, and have never asked for anything other than just that I do the right thing. And those are the kinds of friends that you remember and the ones that last. And so I just want to say thank you to both of you, and their beautiful daughters who, unfortunately, remind me that mine are on their way to college soon. (Laughter.) They grow up too fast. I’ve got a lot of friends in the room, people I’ve known for a long time, and then some folks who I’m meeting for the first time. I want to spend as much time as possible answering questions and taking comments. There are two other people I want to acknowledge because this is the reason we’re here. My name is not on the ballot in November, but there are a couple of people who do extraordinary work every single day in the United States Senate.
