Clinton thanked all the Americans that helped to progress her campaign and agenda calling it a “vast, diverse, creative, unruly, energized campaign” and that her supporters represent “the best of America.”
“For people of all races, and religions, for men and women, for immigrants, for LGBT people, and people with disabilities,” Clinton said in her concession speech. “For everyone. I am so grateful to stand with all of you.”
Obama has also addressed the nation following the results of last night’s election.
