President Obama said Monday he's "not worried" about the Tea Party movement's work for Republicans, and he was more focused on turning out Democrats to the polls Tuesday.

Obama, calling into Cincinnati's MOJO-FM radio during a series of interviews Monday afternoon with radio stations oriented to African-American listeners, said he welcomed the conservative movement's involvement, but said the Tea Party ultimately wasn't his concern right now.

"I think that people are getting active, they're getting involved on both sides. The challenge is not the Tea Party, per se," the president said.

"I think it's good that conservatives are rallying to get involved. I just want to make sure that folks who are thinking about the future and who are progressives are activated, or more activated," Obama added. "So I'm not worried about what the other side's doing; I'm worried about what we're doing."

Obama spent a good chunk of his day Monday doing interviews meant to boost Democratic turnout for Tuesday's crucial midterm vote. He did interviews with radio stations in Milwaukee, Cincinnati, Miami and Honolulu on Monday, and has additional national radio interviews scheduled with other hosts targeting black communities. Obama also taped an interview set to broadcast on Tuesday with Ryan Seacrest, the "American Idol" and pop radio host.

The president has spent a good deal of his political efforts during the closing days of the campaign on turning out reliably Democratic voters to the polls. The party establishment has focused on promoting early voting where it's available and has used other avenues to promote voting on Nov. 2 in demographic groups that had favored Democrats in 2008.

Part of that effort has meant a series of rallies in key states over the weekend, culminating in an appearance with Obama and Vice President Biden at a rally Sunday in Cleveland.

Ohio plays host to key senatorial and gubernatorial contests and a series of competitive House races, the Democrats in which Obama constantly promoted during his radio appearances. He did the same for candidates in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Florida in his other radio appearances, too.
