JamesTaylor.com has released their newsletter for October and November. It opens with a reminder to vote on November 4 and this statement from James Taylor:
“I’ve always been proud of my North Carolina roots. As this crucial election approaches I am honored to join the efforts of the Obama Campaign here in my beloved Tar Heel home. It thrills me that North Carolina has become a “battleground state” and that we might lead the nation toward the change we so urgently need. With a victory here in November, we will embody the awakening of a new American spirit of engagement and responsibility. In North Carolina, we can own that change. To me, it comes as no surprise, because I hail from the state that chose to move boldly into the future with its commitment to education and modern technology. That forward looking spirit has paid off for us in a big way. North Carolina for Obama. It’s a good fit.”
Included is the second video released by the BarackObamadotcom YouTube Channel, originally posted on October 27th. Here it is again, in case you missed it:
