Hillary Clinton campaigns with LeBron James in Cleveland

CLEVELAND (AP) Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is campaigning with LeBron James in Cleveland, hoping to motivate African-American voters to the polls.

She's praising the Cavaliers superstar for his basketball skills and ''what he does off the court.''

Clinton says: ''What he does off the court is to care for every child as though that child is his own.''

James tells the crowd that their votes matter. He says: ''It really does.''

Clinton's team is worried about their chances in Ohio, where polls show her in a dead heat with her Republican rival, Donald Trump. She hosted a free concert in the state on Friday with rapper Jay Z and his wife, Beyonce Carter Knowles.

Clinton will campaign later Sunday in Manchester, New Hampshire, with songwriter James Taylor.
