Inside Politics: AME Church denies withdrawing support for Obama
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The African Methodist Episcopal Church is condemning a false online report that the denomination withdrew support for President Obama because of his support for same-sex marriage.
In a statement released Monday, Bishop Samuel Green Sr., president of the Council of Bishops, said the denomination does not endorse candidates for political office.
Bishop Green also denied that the denomination is affiliated with the Coalition of African-American Pastors, which is calling on Mr. Obama to renounce support for same-sex marriage.
The erroneous report was published on the Christian news website charismanews.com. On Tuesday, it appeared to have been taken down.
Obama, Romney volunteers hope to make a difference
ST. PETERSBURG — Call them passionate, idealistic, earnest, even a tad naive.
The volunteers powering President Obama and Mitt Romney’s presidential campaigns share at least one trait: an abiding faith in the political process and a belief that who occupies the White House still matters.
Many voters aren’t as optimistic. An Associated Press-GfK poll taken in June found less than half of adults say the outcome of the Nov. 6 election will make a great deal of difference on the economy, unemployment and the federal budget deficit.
Both sides rely heavily on volunteer labor even as spending on high-priced staples like TV ads, polling and consultants keeps rising. Many of a campaign’s most labor intensive tasks — from staffing offices to making phone calls to registering voters — are done by volunteers.
