A video aired before Sen. Harry Reid made his entrance with his wife. Reid will retire at the end of his term this year.

“We fought for affordable healthcare. It’s a right not a privilege. We did as a team,” referring to Rep. Nancy Pelosi, President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton.

Reid blasted Sen. Leader Mitch McConnell for blasting Obama, and for his policies against women and regarding race. He turned his attention to Trump, calling him an egomaniac, and said parents should be careful about who they vote for:

“Divisive policies are the way Republicans win, but that’s not how you win in America. It’s with a smart, strong national security that values our allies.”

Reid pushed for voter to elect a Democratic senate to push for immigration reform and to regain Democratic control of the Supreme Court.

He called Hillary Clinton the most qualified candidate in the history of America, and said she’d have the backs of voters.

“Together let’s keep fighting.”
