msnbc family shares why they are voting on Nov. 4
The Florida gubernatorial race is in a dead heat, Texas early vote numbers are surging through the roof, and control for the Senate is still considered a toss up. There are several races across the country that have been exciting to watch and several remain too close to call. But more than anything, Nov. 4 is about turning out for the candidate who best addresses voter concerns.
In that vein, msnbc staff and talent shared the issues that matter the most to them in this election cycle and why showing up to the voting booth is more important than ever before. Even President Obama, who voted early in Illinois, expressed an urgency for Democrats to turn out to help the party succeed in an exclusive interview with Rev. Al Sharpton.
“The truth is that in most of these states and most of these congressional districts, if we have high turnout, we win, and when we have low turnout, we lose,” he said. “It’s as simple as that.”
