Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is closing her campaign with rallies and a two-minute ad scheduled to run Monday on national television in prime time.

“Tonight, I’m asking for your vote, and tomorrow, let’s make history together,” the former secretary of State says in closing the commercial, which a Clinton campaign official said is slated to run across the country during “Kevin Can Wait” on CBS and “The Voice” on NBC.

“Our core values are being tested in this election, but everywhere I go, people are refusing to be defined by fear and division,” Clinton says in a direct-to-camera appeal. “Look, we all know we’ve come through some hard economic times and we’ve seen some pretty big changes, but I believe in our people.”

Clinton does not refer to her Republican opponent, Donald Trump, in the ad. She does, however, repeat what has been a familiar refrain of her general election campaign since she effectively launched it in Kentucky and West Virginia coal country back at the beginning of May.

“Working for children and families has been the cause of my life, but it’s never been more important than it is right now. This has to be our mission together: to give our kids and every American the chance to live up to their God-given potential,” Clinton says.

Clinton has several campaign stops on the final day before Election Day, highlighted by a rally in front of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, where she’s set to be joined by her husband, former President Bill Clinton, President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama — along with Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi.

Clinton will then travel from the Keystone State to another key state, North Carolina. She plans to hold a rally in Raleigh that is scheduled to begin shortly before midnight. That event will likely still be going on as the first Election Day votes are cast in the northern reaches of New Hampshire.
