New ad seeks to motivate black voters in Florida



Actor Morgan Freeman’s distinctive voice is used in a new TV ad aimed at African-American voters in Florida and other key states, part of an effort to motivate an essential voting bloc for Democrats.

“What does showing up when it’s time to vote actually mean? You care about protecting his legacy and our progress,” Freeman says as an image of Barack Obama and his family is shown as well as the Obamas helping lead a civil rights march.
