    Thank you, President Obama, for these powerful words. We have the opportunity to make history this Election Day. I am fighting to become the first Black woman to represent this district in Congress, but I can't do it without you. I need all of the folks in our community to vote like never before this election season. We cannot win without YOUR voice and YOUR vote!

    President Obama's got a message for black voters. And it may be one of his most passionate speeches.
