|Shaka Smart will surely bring energy as host of a rally for President Barack Obama on Saturday.|
Smart, who will be entering his fourth season, will serve as the host for a rally at the Siegel Center for President Barack Obama. Obama will be on his first re-election campaign trip with the Siegel Center being his second stop after an appearance at Ohio State earlier on Saturday. Smart will welcome not only President Obama, but also the first lady, Michelle Obama, to the Siegel Center.
“I remember she had all the staffers and volunteers over to our house, and they’d be calling and preparing, and Maya kept saying that, ‘We’re going to win Florida,’” Smart said. “If you ask her today, she’s still the reason why.”
