Rocker Springsteen to hit campaign trail for Obama
WASHINGTON (AFP) - Rock star Bruce Springsteen plans to hit the campaign trail for President Barack Obama on Thursday as the White House race heats up in the final three weeks ahead of the election.
"President Obama is our best choice because he has a vision of the United States as a place where we are all in this together," Mr Springsteen said in a statement distributed by the campaign.
"We're still living through very hard times but justice, equality and real freedom are not always a tide rushing in. They are more often a slow march, inch by inch, day after long day.
"I believe President Obama feels these days in his bones and has the strength to live them with us and to lead us to a country 'where no one crowds you and no one goes it alone,'" he said, quoting his song "Long Walk Home."
