newark - Former American President Barack Obama has for the first time been in a political meeting since his resignation. The Democrat supports two party fellow campaigners to win a governor's seat in the states of New Jersey and Virginia. The interim elections will be held next month. That is exactly one year after the presidential elections.
Without mentioning the name of current president Donald Trump, Obama said that voters in New Jersey 'have the opportunity to quit politics of fear and division by voting on Phil Murphy. '
After the meeting in New Jersey, Obama later on Thursday evening (local time) will announce another campaign meeting in Richmond, Virginia. In addition to the two governor seats, there is also a seat in the state of Alabama in the state of the Senate.
The elections are seen as an important measure of the popularity of President Trump.
