CLEVELAND | Obama tells voters sitting on sidelines in 2018 ‘dangerous’
CLEVELAND — Former President Barack Obama delivered a simple message Thursday headed into the fall midterm elections: Vote.
Speaking to an enthusiastic crowd of several thousand in Cleveland, Obama said the consequences of sitting on the sidelines during November’s midterm elections “are far more dangerous” than in the past.
Without mentioning Republican President Donald Trump by name, Obama said, “This is not normal what we’re seeing. It is radical.” He said a continuation of Republican control in Washington would threaten Medicaid, affordable health care, even democracy.
