bawerSAN FRANCISCO: Luminaries from the tech sector launched the first in a series of online videos supporting President Barack Obama on Friday, in the latest effort of the "Tech for Obama" group.

 

A two-minute YouTube video touting "innovation" included comments from a dozen tech executives including Craigslist founder Craig Newmark, LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman and others, one of several videos for Obama.

 

"I believe President Obama understands the conditions necessary to foster innovation in our country," Entelo founder Jon Bischke says in the video.

 

"He believes that we have to take this country forward and innovation is the only way," said Rusty Rueff of the Grammy Foundation.

 

Hoffman adds: "I support Obama because I've personally seen how much he cares about innovation and how much he cares about constructing the future that we all want to have."

 

Several dozen tech executives have lent their names to the "T4O" group, including Salesforce chief Marc Benioff, venture capitalist Deepak Kamra and JLabs chief Judith Estrin.

 

Obama also has drawn support from Yahoo! chief executive Marissa Meyer, and has received contributions from people at Facebook, according to campaign donations watchdog Opensecrets.org.

 

Republican supporters in the tech sector include eBay CEO Meg Whitman and Cisco's John Chambers.
