LeBron James reportedly is going on the campaign trail.
The Cleveland Cavaliers star formally endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in October in an op-ed for Business Insider. Now, James will appear with Clinton on Sunday while she’s in Cleveland, New York Magazine reported Saturday, citing sources.
?Only one person running truly understands the struggles of an Akron child born into poverty,? James wrote in his op-ed. ?And when I think about the kinds of policies and ideas the kids in my foundation need from our government, the choice is clear. That candidate is Hillary Clinton.?
New York Magazine reported that James has never met Clinton, but he’ll participate in a get-out-the-vote rally at Cleveland’s Public Auditorium.
If Clinton wins Ohio, which is a swing state, it won’t be all thanks to James, but his presence could have some real impact. The rally isn’t about convincing people to vote for her, but rather to convince people to vote at all. James is Ohio’s favorite son, so it wouldn’t be surprising if more people head to the voting booths for him.
