First lady Michelle Obama greets volunteers during a visit to a campaign field office during a visit in Raleigh, N.C. , Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2012.
RALEIGH -- First Lady Michelle Obama campaigned across North Carolina Wednesday in what was part pre-convention pep rally, fundraising jaunt, and a vigorous defense of her husband’s administration.
Capping the day at a Raleigh fundraiser, Obama cautioned that everything that her husband had championed during the past four years – from the new health care law to an expansion of the student loan program – was in jeopardy this fall.
“It is all at stake this November,” the First Lady said. “It’s all on the line. Are we going to allow everything we fought for to slip away? We can’t turn back now. We need to keep moving forward.”
