(CNN) - Some cable television viewers will see a commercial from President Obama beginning Saturday.
The 30-second spot, paid for by the Democratic National Committee, will air on MSNBC and BET and features a speech by the president that lays out the stakes in Tuesday’s election, according to a Democratic Party source.
“On November 2nd we face another test,” Obama says in the ad. “If the other side does win they will spend the next 2 years fighting for the very same policies that led us to this recession in the first place. We cannot sit this one out.”
In the ad the president reminds the crowd of the race in 2008, and uses it to gin up support for the November election.
“Two years ago you defied the conventional wisdom in Washington. You proved that the power of everyday people was stronger than the forces of the status quo,” Obama says. “We cannot sit this one out.”
The source describes the ad buy as a significant six-figure expenditure.
