Despite taking a well-deserved time off, former President Barack Obama is back and fully loaded.
The former president is returning to the political scene to attend campaign rallies in New Jersey and Virginia on Thursday to support Democratic party candidates for governor.
The races are a potential indicator of voter sentiment ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, which will be a major test for Trump and his Republican party. Nevertheless, it will be interesting to see which issues Obama raises — health care, the Iran nuclear deal, North Korea, perhaps? Whatever he says will most likely trigger the snowflake currently occupying the Oval Office.
As reported by the New York Times:
“Obama’s trips today to Newark and Richmond are about firing up African-American voters. “Mr. Obama’s appearances on behalf of Virginia’s lieutenant governor, Ralph S. Northam, in Richmond and the financier Philip D. Murphy in Newark — two white candidates in predominantly black cities — come as Democrats struggle to inspire African-Americans to vote this year. While Mr. Murphy appears comfortably in the lead in New Jersey, the race in Virginia is close.”
Obama will kick off the trail in New Jersey beginning at 3:30 pm ET (with him taking the stage after that), while the Virginia campaign stop begins at 7:30 pm ET (with Obama likely hitting the stage in the 8:00 pm ET hour).
We will have an update if times are subject to change.
Evidently, Obama’s return is good news for Democrats, but bad news for inadequate Trump and his right wing moguls.
