WASHINGT0N (AP) – President Barack Obama is telling voters in a new ad that a vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote to uphold his legacy.
Obama says in the ad that “all the progress we’ve made these last eight years is on the ballot.” He’s citing equally, justice, tolerance and respect for women as values he says Clinton would continue to promote.
It’s a sharp contrast from two years ago, when Obama was unpopular and Democrats winced when he occasionally said his policies were on the ballot in the midterms.
Clinton’s campaign says the ad is airing nationally, but mostly in Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio and North Carolina. Obama holds a rally for Clinton in Florida on Friday evening.
