With the election just weeks away, the Obama campaign has tapped “The Boss” to rally supporters in key swing states.
Rocker Bruce Springsteen will join former president Bill Clinton at a campaign rally in Parma, Ohio on Thusday, October 18th. He’ll appear at another event in Ames, Iowa later in the day, reports The Rolling Stone.
“Bruce Springsteen’s values echo what the President and Vice President stand for: hard work, fairness, integrity,” Jim Messina, Obama for America’s campaign manager, said in a statement. “His appearances will help with our get out the vote effort in these critical swing states and we are thrilled with his ongoing support.”
Springsteen previously campaigned in 2004 for John Kerry and was vocal about his opposition to the war in Iraq. In 2008, he played at a New York fundraising concert with Billy Joel and appeared at a handful of rallies with Obama.
