Here is the full text of his speech, which he made at the Election Night Results Watch in the Grand Hyatt Ballroom in Washington DC:
“Let me just say this: it’s clear who the winners are tonight, and that’s the American people. Your voice was heard at the ballot box! Your voice!
“Listen, I’ll be brief, because we have real work to do – and this is not a time for celebration, not when one in 10 of our fellow citizens are out of work, not when we have buried our children under a mountain of debt, not when our Congress is held in such low esteem.
