With a huge midterm election just 6 days away…The Obama administration and the Democratic party are trying to recreate the energy that was so important in Election 2008…and we all know that star power can bring out the masses, especially the youth vote.
Last night, the Democratic party announced a weekend rally for Illinois candidates that would feature an appearance by President Obama and a performance by Chicago’s own Common. In 2008, Common was one of the many artists and celebrities who played their part and campaigned for the election of President Obama.
With the speculation of Jay-Z being on the 2012 Campaign trail, and Common’s constant support…it’s evident that President Obama’s team understands the power that hip-hop plays in society. If you’re in the Chicago area, the rally will take place Saturday, at Midway Plaisance park. Entry is free, and gates open at 4:30pm.
This election is just as important (if not more) than the election that took place two years ago. If you’re registered, do your part and let your voice be heard on November 2nd.
