WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is campaigning with basketball star LeBron James in Cleveland on Sunday, hoping to motivate African-American voters to the polls.
She’s praising the NBA player 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 on Sunday in Manchester, New Hampshire, with songwriter James Taylor.
