Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager Robby Mook said Tuesday a “big part” of why he is excited about her campaign is because she is a woman.

CNN “New Day” host Alisyn Camerota told Mook, “One of the things that Bernie Sanders has been very good at is inspiring his followers with a message of excitement. You see his rallies, and he’s always talked about that. Hillary Clinton has been lately talking about how bad Donald Trump is. What will be her message to excite people after tomorrow?”

Mook replied, “Well, as you said, knock on wood, we’re looking forward to celebrating tonight the first woman in our country’s history to be nominated by a major party for president. That’s pretty exciting. That’s a big part of why I’m on this campaign. But also, I think not only do we talk about the danger that Donald Trump presents, but the incredible opportunities we have as a country. We can provide health care for everybody, we can make sure families can afford college again. These are exciting things.”

“And we face as crossroads as a country,” Mook said. “Are we going to move forward or are we gonna go backwards? And I think we have a tremendous opportunity to keep this country moving forward.” (WATCH: Hillary Clinton Can’t Name A Top Accomplishment While Secretary Of State)
