Obama records robocall for Garcia


That voice in automated calls dropping Friday in Florida's 26th congressional district? President Barack Obama.

Obama recorded a robocall for Democrat Joe Garcia, who is trying to unseat Republican Rep. Carlos Curbelo.

"His, this is Barack Obama, calling on behalf of my friend Joe Garcia," the president says on the call.

Obama endorsed Garcia last week, and Garcia got to speak Thursday at Florida International University -- which is in the 26th district -- before the president's rally for Hillary Clinton.

In the call, Obama urges voters to vote in person early or on Election Day -- or to return their mail ballot.

The president has also recorded calls for several state legislative candidates.
