VIDEO CLIP OF PRESIDENT OBAMA: Please give the National Teacher of the Year a big round of applause.
HAYES: I'm Jahana Hayes and I'm running for Congress.
CLIP OF OBAMA: She had a special gift to improve not only her own condition but those around her.
HAYES: You know, teachers our nation builders. That's our job – to affect change, to improve outcomes. Isn't that the same job of Congress? I know how to advocate for people with better jobs, stronger schools, affordable health care. If Congress starts to look like us, no one can stop us. I'm Jahana Hayes and I approve this message.
