President Barack Obama presents Stevie Wonder ...

Cleveland.com is reporting that fewer than 200 people showed up for a unique get-out-the-vote rally for President Obama featuring legendary musician Stevie Wonder.

 

 

Located at Cleveland State University, Brandon Blackwell of The Plain Dealer writes that the event was primarily to encourage early voting, but that perhaps Obama supporters weren’t given enough warning to clear their schedules for the mini-concert.

Blackwell relates:

Obama for America Ohio, which hosted the rally, informed its nearly 34,000 followers on Twitter about the event around 10 a.m.

“Perhaps it wasn’t advertised properly, but the people who are here are fired up,” said Bill Milhoan, of Mentor.

Milhoan, who said he supports Obama, was one of the few people in the crowd who have not already voted.

“It would be disingenuous to say I am here because of Obama,” he said. “How do you pass up a chance to see Stevie Wonder?”

  1. I have had this discussion with a friend of mine. People are not showing up for Obama but for the performers. i.e. Springsteen, Bon Jovi

  2. Hop said this could be called Political Plunder instead of Stevie Wonder. LOL!!!!

    No wonder they are going to smaller arenas.
