Barrett: Our soul is strong

Repeating a common refrain for the night Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett called for Dems to unite behind Barack Obama.

Barrett noted that he decided to back Obama 14 months ago, and said people thought he was crazy. Now, he quipped, they ask him for stock tips

Barrett said Americans are now "beginning to understand the we will have a nominee that will unite this country and bring back hope to a generation that has lost hope in this country."

After what he called a "long and historic primary season," Barrett said Republicans are wrong in describing the party as bruised and battered

"Our soul is strong and we know what's at stake in November," Barrett said.

Barrett touched on a number bread and butter Dem issues and said it is time to elect Obama to the White House and more Democrats to the state Assembly and Senate and to Congress.

"Our job is to be united," Barrett said.
