Former President Barack Obama announced endorsements Wednesday of 81 Democratic candidates in the November midterm elections, and said he is “eager” to help his party gain seats in a contest widely seen as a referendum on President Donald Trump.

While Obama did not mention Trump by name, he said in a statement outlining his plans that he wanted to lend his status to help candidates who would fight for shared opportunity, help repair alliances abroad and further a commitment to justice. 

He described his picks as “diverse, patriotic, and big-hearted.”
