    Failed to understand "whom Democrats need to show up"

    Does it mean "Democrats need to show up to whom (the few thousand union members)"?

    Context:

    “They’re betting that between now and November, you’re going to come down with amnesia,” the president said of the GOP. Wearing neither a jacket nor a tie, and with shirt sleeves rolled up, a feisty Obama sought to rev up a few thousand union members — the very voters he won two years ago, and whom Democrats need to show up at the polls in November to mitigate GOP gains.

    Democrats need them​ to show up and vote.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
