DETROIT (AP)—At church services, in rallies and on social media, Black pastors urged congregants to vote, hoping to inspire a late flood of African American turnout that could help propel Democrat Hillary Clinton to victory in critical swing states.
On the final weekend of the presidential campaign, a pastor in Detroit spoke of voting and citizenship. In Philadelphia, the minister reminded congregants others had died for their chance to cast a ballot. Reverend Jesse Jackson spoke to a few hundred people in front of City Hall in Tallahassee, Fla., before they marched a block over to the county courthouse to vote early.
