Michelle Obama Stumps With Hillary Clinton as Presidential Race Tightens
First Lady Michelle Obama brought her star power onto the campaign trail Thursday stumping for Hillary Clinton as the Democratic White House hopeful seeks to conquer battleground states before Election Day.
Obama has emerged as a compelling force in the hard-fought campaign, delivering powerful arguments against Republican Donald Trump and in support of Clinton's bid to become the first female US president.
"She is ready to be commander-in-chief on Day 1, and yes, she happens to be a woman," Obama said of the former first lady to a roar from a crowd of 11,000 people in North Carolina, one of the swing states in play.
