Former President of the US, Barack Obama is expanding his involvement in politics ahead of November’s elections. On Monday, he endorsed more than 200 Democrats running for offices ranging from local to national.
The endorsements include close races where his political cache could make a difference, veterans of his campaign and White House, and younger more diverse candidates. Last month, Obama endorsed 81 Democrats running in the 2018 elections. In a statement, Obama describes the candidates as “Americans who aren’t just running against something, but for something.”
Obama’s announced recently of his intentions to re-engage in public life. He has campaigned on behalf of various Democratic candidates, with Michelle Obama, who has been working to help lead a working group to help register new voters.
