WASHINGTON, D.C., November 4, 2014 –  On Tuesday, in an interview with TV One, First Lady Michelle Obama said that African-Americans should vote straight Democratic party ticket regardless of who was on the ballot or what stances the candidate held. The interview took place on the network’s “NewOne Now” program with host Roland Martin.

The First Lady stated, “That’s my message to voters. This isn’t about Barack. It’s not about the person on that ballot. It’s about you, and for most of the people we are talking to a Democratic ticket is the clear ticket that we should be voting on regardless of who said what or did this. That shouldn’t even come into the equation.”

The Democratic party is facing a most-likely defeat in the Senate this election cycle, and has focused heavily on mobilizing African-American voters for Tuesday’s election in a Hail Mary attempt to maintain control of Congress.

Obama went on to state, “Voting is critical no matter who’s on the ballot. And that’s one of the things we have to continuously work on in our communities of new voters, folks who maybe voted for the first time because they voted for Barack Obama, young people who voted for the first time because they were inspired by this president.”

The statements by Obama on the cable channel program, geared towards attracting an African-American demographic, embody claims levied by multiple members of the Republican party against Democrats in recent weeks, accusing the democratic party of playing the race card leading up to the 2014 midterm elections.

Democratic candidates in the south have reportedly gone as far as using images of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown in recent campaign ads to invoke memories of Jim Crow-era segregation and play up fears of intimidation, repression and inequality in an effort to blame these issues on the Republican party.

According to a recent article by The New York Times, Democrats across the country, and especially those locked in tight Senate races throughout the south, have heavily relied on racially charged campaign messages to mobilize their base and increase favorability with potential minority voters.

Republicans have frequently accused Democrats of being unable to run on their own merit and party platforms this election cycle; and have repeatedly pointed out the tendency of Democratic candidates to rely on racially charged, unjust fear-mongering tactics in their campaigns.
