Lloyd casts her vote for Obama

Makeba Lloyd, the media coordinator for Harlem4Obama, never took any interest in politics until this presidential election season. “I was completely disgusted by politics until now,” said Lloyd. “We actually have a candidate that I understand and speaks to the people.”  Though the 15th Congressional District – a Democratic battleground to which Harlem belongs – went to Senator Clinton during the Super Tuesday primary, Lloyd does not feel disheartened. “We feel good, we really do,” she said. Though Lloyd does not expect Obama to sweep tonight, she does expect him to come out strong, “like he has in the past 12 primaries,” Lloyd added.
