WASHINGTON (AP) — Former President Barack Obama is ramping up his involvement in politics ahead of November's elections. On Monday, he endorsed more than 200 Democrats running for offices ranging from local to national.

The endorsements include close races where his political cache could make a difference, veterans of his campaign and White House, and younger more diverse candidates. Last month, Obama endorsed 81 Democrats running in the 2018 elections. In a statement, Obama describes the candidates as "Americans who aren't just running against something, but for something."

Obama's moves come as he and former first lady Michelle Obama re-engage in public life. The former president has campaigned on behalf of several Democratic candidates, while Michelle Obama has been working to help lead a working group to help register new voters.
