LeBron James campaigns with Hillary Clinton in Cleveland
CLEVELAND (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is campaigning with LeBron James in Cleveland, hoping to motivate African-American voters to the polls.
She’s praising the Cavaliers superstar for his basketball skills and “what he does off the court.”
Clinton says: “What he does off the court is to care for every child as though that child is his own.”
James tells the crowd that their votes matter. He says: “It really does.”
Clinton’s team is worried about their chances in Ohio, where polls show her in a dead heat with her Republican rival, Donald Trump. She hosted a free concert in the state on Friday with rapper Jay Z and his wife, Beyonce Carter Knowles.
Clinton will campaign later Sunday in Manchester, New Hampshire, with songwriter James Taylor.
