While her husband campaigned along the West Coast today, First Lady Michelle Obama payed a visit to Ohio to garner support for her husband’s campaign with her new initiative to battle voter apathy.
She kicked off her day in Westerville, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus, where she stressed the importance of registering to vote. She later took her message to Dayton where she spoke to a crowd of almost 1,800 at the Convention Center.
She noted her husband’s record and the achievements of the nation under his administration, including passing the Affordable Care Act, ending the war in Iraq and finding Osama Bin Laden.
In her speech, which lasted approximately 30 minutes, she never once mentioned Mitt Romney’s name, and she shied away from any direct comparisons of the candidate and her husband.
