First Lady is A Hit in Seattle

Posted: Oct. 4th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse
Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama made an appearance in Seattle yesterday to raise money for her husband's campaign. This is of some importance right now since the polls show that Romney is close behind President Obama. In this fundraiser the First Lady talked about her upbringing, and her husband's, and how they are living the American dream and wish to share it with everyone else.

Speaking before a Seattle crowd that paid up to $10,000 per person to attend, first lady Michelle Obama urged her husband's supporters to "talk to everyone you know. Your friends, your neighbor, that nephew you haven't seen in a while. ... If you do that, we can win Washington state."

Michelle Obama rallied support for her husband's re-election campaign Tuesday night in downtown Seattle, recounting his accomplishments and imploring the approximately 700 fundraiser attendees to "work like never before."
