A Democratic Congresswoman is busting out the moves to get young people to the polls.
Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-OH) posted a video of herself and two staffers dancing to Drake’s In My Feelings on Friday.
She wrote in her post: “I don’t know who Keke is but I want her to vote next November because this @WhiteHouse has me and many other Americans “in my feelings”. #KekeMustVote #InMyFeelingsChallenge.”
Drake’s song includes a line about someone named Keke.
In a statement provided to CNN, Beatty also said the real goal was to get younger voters, especially millenials, to the polls.
“As a Member of Congress, it’s imperative we tap into trending topics to help deliver important messages to the next generation, especially when it comes to the importance of voting and using one’s voice,” she said. “This is but the latest example of how I am bridging the gap between politics/government and millennials.”
Beatty also said she hopes other members of the Congressional Black Caucus to join in on the fun, which was part of the #InMyFeelingsChallenge.
“We just need to get more people engaged,” the Congresswoman said.
