“On Tuesday, let’s make sure our country doesn’t go back 50 years”
Barack Obama calls on Democratic voters to vote. Important issues such as the right to abortion or social security are at stake. Now we have to fight together for democracy.
DFormer US President Barack Obama issued an urgent appeal to voters to vote for Democrats in the November 8 congressional election. “Make sure our country doesn’t go back 50 years on Tuesday,” Obama told hundreds of spectators in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on Saturday.
“The only way to save democracy is to fight for it together.” Obama warned that important issues such as abortion rights and Social Security are at stake. Republicans should not be given a majority in the Senate and House of Representatives. “Pouting and mopping is not an option.”
Pennsylvania was the center of campaigning on Saturday. Besides Obama, US President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump were also in the state on the east coast of the US to campaign for the vote. Many Democrats are pinning their hopes on Pennsylvania’s Josh Fetterman, who could win an additional Senate seat for the party. While Obama and Biden set the mood for Fetterman, Trump was expected to appear in the evening with his rival, Mehmet Oz.
The race between the two could eventually decide which of the two parties would control the Senate for the next two years. Without a majority of his Democrats in the Senate, Biden could no longer get through with important appointments in the judiciary and other projects.
