A Detroit city council member is asking President Obama to bail out the financially troubled city in return for residents' overwhelmingly supporting his successful re-election bid.

"There ought to be a quid pro quo," said Councilwoman JoAnn Watson, according to My Fox Detroit.

Nearly 75 percent of voters in Wayne County, which includes Detroit, voted for Obama on Nov. 6.
