Remy finds a silver lining in a Trump presidency.
With a little over three weeks to go in the election and the polls dramatically tightening, Bruce Springsteen has decided to hit the campaign trail in support of President Barack Obama. Springsteen will campaign alongside Bill Clinton at a campaign rally in Parma, Ohio on Thusday, October 18th. That same day, he’ll appear at another event in Ames, Iowa.
Campaign manager Jim Messina said in a statement reported by The Washington Post that Springsteen echoes the values the president is fighting for. He added that Springsteen’s appearances will help get out the vote efforts in Ohio, a swing state whose 18 electoral college votes are considered crucial.
