National Rifle Association - they are Freedom's Safest Place. 43:22 This election that we're facing isn't about the next four years — as a matter of fact — it's not even about the next eight years. This election that we're looking at right now is the next forty or fifty years because of the Supreme Court of the United States and the balance in that will be decided by the next President of the United States — and we'd better get it right. 43:50 Good to be in Georgia.

Quit fighting one another. 1:04:12 We do not believe the Constitution is a cafeteria plan. Every word in the Bill of Rights is sacred. 1:04:29 I don't believe we need more Washington in our lives, but less. 1:04:34 I am looking for a President of the United States to make Washington, D.C. as inconsequential in our lives as it can be, and I will suggest to you — Donald Trump is that man. Donald Trump is the person who will lead America to greatness. Donald Trump is the individual who will stand up for our Constitution, our Second Amendment rights. He will lead America back to greatness again. I ask you as Georgians, this country needs you again. Donald Trump needs you again and he will lead America in this world to its greatest days. God bless you. Thank you for what you're gonna do over the next months to make sure that we win this election and our children and our grandchildren thank you for it in advance. God bless you. 1:05:38 John Padgett: "Home run!" 1:05:49 Governor Rick Perry hugs Ginger Howard and takes his leave.
