Derek Fisher Campaigns for Obama on Reservation


NBA star Derek Fisher urged Native Americans in two Blackfeet Reservation communities Thursday to do what it takes to vote in this year’s presidential election.

Fisher visited Heart Butte High School and Browning High School to emphasize the importance of the Native American vote in this year’s election, along with promoting voter registration.

"The main message is getting voter registration numbers as high as possible," said Fisher in a phone interview.

The Los Angeles Lakers point guard was on the reservation on behalf of the Barack Obama campaign.
