GM has announced they are trying to stay out of the political arena between now and the November election by banning President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney from its plants.

According to WNEM, GM Vice President Bob Ferguson told the Detroit Free Press that the automaker wants to put all of its energy "behind selling cars and trucks."

GM has also banned other political candidates as well and Ferguson said "it's an understatement" that they can't wait until the November 6 election is over.

GM was able to survive bankruptcy through government loans. The government loaned GM $49.5 billion in 2009, and the company still owes $26.2 billion. The U.S. Treasury owns 26% of the automaker.
