Democratic senator Ben Platt: ‘We’re going to win the election, we’re not going to lose the presidency’

Democratic Sen. Ben Plattson on Tuesday said the country has a “path to recovery” after the presidential election, but said he believes the country can’t move forward with the economy without an investment in education and infrastructure.
“This is a very sad day, but there is a path to recovery.
I believe in a path forward, but it’s going to take time, and it will require the country to invest in the schools, the highways, the infrastructure,” Plattsons remarks were read during a town hall with voters in the Washington, D.C., suburbs.
He said he believed the president will be reelected, though he’s unsure of his final stance on the future of the country.
“I’ve had this conversation with him, and I’ve had that conversation with my family.
I think he understands the situation and the need to make sure we’re in the position to get the economy moving forward,” Plattons said.
“But we have to continue to make the investments.
I know there are a lot of folks in this country that have jobs, and they want to keep that going, and we’re going a long way to get there.
But I think there’s a path there.”
He said the nation has a path “from a place of deep and deep dysfunction to a place where the American people are optimistic that we’re moving forward with something,” but added that the president needs to be “guided.”
“We have to be mindful of the fact that we need a president that will put the interests of the American worker above all else, and not someone who will put his own agenda ahead of the public interest,” Plats said.
