When all else fails, pray.
Democrats are praying that a high black voter will be their "secret weapon" to avoid a Republican ass-kicking.
Today, Rev. Al Sharpton and the National Action Network will launch a coast-to-coast voter education tour to try to rev up the black vote. Sharpton will speak at churches, rallies and get-out-the-vote events, and visit early vote polling locations in targeted predominantly black precincts.
Just because blacks got the vote out in 2008 does not assure victory this November. Once was not enough to protect African American interests.
The tour will kick off in Los Angeles, where Sharpton will meet with faith and community leaders to discuss GOTV efforts for the midterm elections.
On Saturday, Sharpton will be in Philadelphia, where 2000 people are expected to attend a GOTV rally at Bright Hope Baptist Church. He will be joined by a host of elected officials, including Gov. Ed Rendell and Mayor Michael Nutter.
