Obama urges Dems to campaign aggressively for Clinton

Published: Updated:

CHILMARK, Mass. (AP) – President Barack Obama is urging Democrats to campaign aggressively for the next 80 days for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Obama says 80 days is not a lot to ask of them because Clinton could still lose if Democrats don’t do their jobs. He says there’s nothing more important than helping her become the next president.

Obama told Clinton supporters at a fundraiser on Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, that Democrats need to be “running scared” until the day after the Nov. 8 election.

Obama pointedly did not mention Donald Trump by name and said he’s tired of talking about the Republican candidate.

The president broke from his vacation on the island to help raise money for Clinton. He says his wife, Michelle, granted him “special dispensation” to do so.
