With the next election quickly approaching in 2012, the Obama camp is strategizing for re-election. According to the New York Post‘s “Page Six” column, they are considering using Jay-Z to reach the youth and minority voters. 

“I can’t believe you’ve finally heard the chatter about him replacing Larry Summers,” Deputy White House Press Secretary William Burton told the Post. “In all seriousness, keep in mind he was pretty active during the 2008 election, so I don’t think it’d surprise anyone that he would be involved again. But it’s a little premature.” 

The 2012 Presidential election will be held on November 6, 2012.
