The CEO Of The DNC Says They Tried To Get Beyoncé To Support Hillary Clinton At Convention
Beyoncé has been a very vocal supporter of the Obama’s since their first run at office back in 2008. She has also been a very vocal supporter of women’s rights, empowerment and feminism.
That said, it was a bit surprising that she didn’t show face at the Democratic National Convention this past week to support both the Obamas and Hillary Clinton in their mission to make her the very first woman president of these United States.
However, that isn’t to say that Clinton and the DNC didn’t want request her presence. DNC CEO Rev. Leah Daughtry spoke to Refinery29 last month about the possibility of a Bey sighting:
I heard you love Beyoncé. Any chance she’ll be joining us in Philadelphia?
“I believe she’s in Sweden on the Formation tour, but we’re going to see what we can do to get her to fly over for the night or so. We’ll see!”
From what we can tell, Beyoncé doesn’t seem to be a Trump supporter or an “undecided” as she was seen attending an L.A. Reid-hosted fundraiser for HRC back in May.
Maybe Bey is planning to publicly support Hillz now that she has been officially nominated.
Will you be disappointed if Mrs. Carter is with Hillary, or will you follow her to the polls?
