BET founder urges Black Caucus to support Clinton as VP
BET founder and Hillary Clinton supporter, Bob Johnson, made a case for Hillary Clinton to be Barack Obama’s Vice Presidential pick.
In a letter to the Congressional Black Caucus, Johnson wrote, “I, as a longtime supporter of Senator Clinton and the Democratic Party, urge you to do everything possible to unify this party to win the Presidential election in November. For me and millions of other Democrats, I believe the most important step that you can take now is to encourage the Congressional Black Caucus to urge Senator Obama to select Senator Hillary Clinton as his Vice Presidential runningmate.”
Johnson spoke to CNN’s John Roberts about his support for Hillary Clinton to be Vice President.
