An energetic John McCain told supporters in Colorado that he was willing to fight to the end to win the presidential election, and they should be too.
“We’re going to win this election and we’re going to win it right here,” McCain told the crowd in Grand Junction Colo., his next-to-last campaign stop before he heads to Phoenix for the remainder of election night.
“We’re going to take America in a new direction… and we’re going to have to fight to do it,” McCain said. “Get out there and vote. Get your neighbors to the polls. Drag them there if you have to.”
Flanked by his wife, Cindy McCain and long-time supporter Sen. Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut, McCain conceded that the race to beat Barack Obama looked increasingly daunting. “But I’m not afraid of the fight,” McCain said. “I’m ready for the fight.
“I know you are worried,” McCain told the supportive audience. “The pundits have written us off. They may not know it but Mac is back. I can feel the momentum.”
McCain reiterated his campaign messages of cutting taxes, helping small businesses and controlling government spending. He also took a swipe at his opponent’s lack of experience saying, “the next president won’t have time to learn how to change Washington.”
“We are at a moment of national crisis that will determine our future,” McCain concluded. “We will lead, we will prosper, we will be safer.
“I choose to fight. I need you to fight with me. Never give up. Never quit.”
