Background: Rev. Al Sharpton will conduct the interview with President Barack Obama as he and National Action Network continue their national coast-to-coast nonpartisan voter education tour to get out the vote in the final stretch before the Midterm elections. Rev. Al Sharpton kicked of the tour recently with get out the vote events in Los Angeles, California, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Miami, and Jacksonville Florida and spent this past weekend in Ohio and Florida where he spoke at churches, GOTV rallies, union events, and visit targeted early vote polling locations to increase voter turnout in targeted precincts in the African American community.  Rev. Al Sharpton has also doing GOTV in Virginia and Massachusetts. Rev. Sharpton has been urging people to get out the vote while impressing upon the community that just because Blacks got the vote out in 2008 does not assure victory this November. Once was not enough to protect African-American interests.
