leave a comment »

No they won’t be performing together, but the unlikely duo of Jay-Z and Caroline Kennedy are both making separate visits coming to Richmond on behalf of Barack Obama.

Jay-Z, the hip-hop star and urban entrepreneur will headline a “Last Chance for Change” rally Saturday at Virginia Union University. He will be joined by Russell Simmons and record executive Kevin Liles. The event is not a concert, but a rally in support of Senator Obama. In addition the campaign is trying to drum of support for their get out the vote efforts by offering random students who sign up to volunteer the chance to meet Jay-Z backstage.

JFK’s daughter Caroline, who was an early supporter of Obama, will headline four different events across Virginia, including one here in Richmond. Many political pundits believe that one of the major turning points in the democratic primary was the Kennedy family’s decision to get behind Obama over Hillary Clinton.

Details for both Richmond events is after the jump:
