ATLANTA -- With the hours ticking down until Election Day, one of President Obama's most vocal supporters is heading into battleground states in hopes of swinging the vote.

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed has visited Ohio and Florida in recent weeks, making calls to potential voters and working with young Obama supporters.

"This is an all hands on deck effort," Mayor Reed said in an interview with 11Alive's Blayne Alexander.

"There is no different between the people that are trying to help the president, so when you're part of this campaign, you do what you are asked to do."

Reed said all of those travel expenses have been paid by the Obama campaign and his trips have only been over the weekend.

When asked if might be neglecting his mayoral duties to campaign, the Mayor quickly said no.

"I am the mayor of this city 24 hours a day, every day," Reed said. "I give this job my full commitment. My heart and my attention is never away from this city."
