The celebrity endorsements continue to roll in for President Obama these days.
Actress Nia Long recently sat down to tape a video endorsement of the president. The campaign posted the video on their YouTube channel on Tuesday.
For me, it’s important to see a figure like Long involved publicly with the campaign. It’s not that Obama is at a loss for black people to support him. However, it’s good seeing a strong African-American actress support the president and talk about key issues resonates with the community in a way the president perhaps cannot.
Think of it as a new way of telling the same story. I’m a fan of Long’s and appreciated seeing her in this capacity.
This is all a part of the Obama campaign’s continued strategy to reach specific groups of people — i.e., Latinos, African-Americans, women, LGBT — with targeted spokespeople.
