Gayle King calls for Obama

Gayle King is calling North Carolina voters for Barack Obama.

In a minute-and-a-half long recorded call, the longtime friend of talk-show host Oprah Winfrey encourages North Carolinians to get out to vote.

"This, as you may have heard, is a very, very, very tight race and Barack Obama needs you to get to the polls because every vote matters, so please be sure to take your family and friends along with you today," she says.

She also gives a toll-free number for people who need a ride to the polls and reminds them that they can vote as long as they're in line by 7:30 p.m.

"This message, by the way, is paid for by Obama for America, and I apologize that it's so long, but this is so important to me," she says.

A transcript after the jump.

—————

Hello North Carolina voter. This is Gayle King calling for Barack Obama to remind you that today, today, today is Election Day. If you haven't already voted, please do so — how about now?

Polls are open until 7:30 tonight and if you're in line by then, you still have the right to vote.

This, as you may have heard, is a very, very, very tight race and Barack Obama needs you to get to the polls because every vote matters, so please be sure to take your family and friends along with you today.

It is time to make your voice heard and join the movement for change, so I'm asking please vote for Barack Obama today.

If you need to find your polling location or get a ride to the polls, please know that Team Obama is there in your neighborhood and they want to help get you there. Please call 1-866-675-2008.

Again, that number is 1-866-675-2008.

It is your time to get to your polling site no later than 7:30 today sharp. You can still vote as long as you're standing in line.

It's time to change the world, but Barack cannot do it alone. We need you, we need you, we need you. Please hurry and vote today.

This message, by the way, is paid for by Obama for America, and I apologize that it's so long, but this is so important to me. Thank you for your time. Bye.

Re: Gayle King calls for Obama

I hope the superdelegates will pay attention to the fact that while Obama was popular among working class whites when he ran in Wisconsin, he has been losing that segment of electorate to Hillary, as of late, as was abundantly clear in Ohio and Pennsylvania. The demographics of Michigan, being similar to that of Ohio and Pennsylvania, will also help her in the general election, should she be the nominee.
