En route to Denver from western Iowa on Air Force One, President Obama made a 15-20 minute phone call to 50 radio disc jockeys, most of them African-Americans in swing states, campaign spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki told reporters.
DJs for Obama, an effort to mobilize young voters to register to vote and turn out to re-elect President Obama, hosted a block party in northwest Philadelphia on Sept., 8th. The event featured four Philadelphia-based disc jockeys spinning music for a crowd of about 100 people.
Obama encouraged the disk jockeys to urge their listeners to register, vote, and vote early if possible -- and to get involved in the election process.
Psaki would not release the names of the radio personalities.
