Top Tech Innovators Star in New Obama Ad
Which presidential candidate would be better for promoting technological innovation? The entrepreneurs and innovators in this new ad argue it would be Barack Obama.
The ad features a slew of technologists, including Craigslist’s Craig Newmark, Dropbox’s Drew Houston and LinkedIn’s Reid Hoffman, explaining why they’re supporting Obama.
“I support Obama because I’ve personally seen how much he cares about innovation and how much he cares about constructing the kind of future that we all want to have,” says Hoffman in the video.
It was released Friday morning from Tech4Obama, a group of technologists working to re-elect the sitting president. The group’s membership also includes Sean Parker and Aneesh Chopra, though they didn’t appear in this ad.
