latest Obama campaign contest offers some quality time on the
basketball court with the President and a few friends. Politico says,
“supporters have an
opportunity to attend an event with basketball stars Carmelo Anthony,
Patrick Ewing, and Michael Jordan, the campaign announced
Tuesday. "Imagine shooting hoops" with those stars, deputy national field
director Marlon Marshall wrote in an email to supporters.
Other attendees include Sheryl Swoopes, Kyrie Irving, and Alonzo
Mourning. It's the latest in a long string of campaign events designed
to engage grassroots supporters and boost the campaign's small donor
number.” More from Politico’s 44.
