A warning to those who are sometimes slow to pick up the phone: you may miss a call from the president.
President Barack Obama stopped by a local campaign office in Port St. Lucie, Florida, on Sunday to visit with supporters, and he placed a call to Barney Roberts, a volunteer in Jacksonville.
“Hopefully he’ll answer,” Obama said as excited volunteers listened in.
Roberts didn’t answer.
“Hey Barney, this is Barack Obama,” the president said to the man’s voice mail. “I’m going to try you at the other number.”
Lucky for Roberts, Obama had a backup number to dial, and this time the volunteer picked up.
