Obama-Biden Campaign - Wednesday: Michelle Obama Returns To NH

Manchester, New Hampshire – Michelle Obama, wife of Democratic presidential nominee, Senator Barack Obama, will return to New Hampshire Wednesday for a “Change We Need” Rally at Keene State College. With less than thirty days left until election day, Michelle Obama will talk with students and community members about the Obama-Biden blueprint for change and share why she believes her husband will be an extraordinary president.

As part of the Obama-Biden campaign’s 50-state Vote For Change [ http://voterforchange.com ] campaign, Mrs. Obama will emphasize with voters about the importance of registering to vote, and participating in this year’s historic election. At Wednesday’s event, Mrs. Obama will also discuss what’s at stake for members of the Granite State community in this year’s election, and will share her perspective on the clear choice that voters have in this election – to cast their ballot for the Obama/Biden ticket – the only candidates who understand the challenges of everyday Americans.

Mrs. Obama has hosted rallies focused on voter registration and outreach to young people over the last several months, as young people have already had an incredible impact on this campaign. In addition to rallies similar to the one scheduled at Keene State on Wednesday, Mrs. Obama has also focused her campaigning on roundtable conversations with working women and military families all over the country – discussions which she started in New Hampshire during the primary.

“On Wednesday, Michelle Obama will visit Keene State to talk about Senator Obama’s plan to provide real relief for hard working Granite Staters and put an end to the Bush economic policies that have devastated the middle class,” said Sandra Abrevaya, New Hampshire Communications Director. “Michelle will also encourage students to vote with the town clerk, who will be present in the student union during the event, or vote by absentee before leaving for winter break. As a state that was decided by one percentage point in the last two Presidential elections, Michelle will stress how much every vote counts.”
