Clinton, Michelle Obama make tag-team appearace in bid for women's vote

Share

However, beginning with her July Democratic National Convention speech in Philadelphia, Michelle Obama has attempted to boost Clinton's favorability ratings by pitching the Democratic nominee as one who would be best suited for preserving President Obama's accomplishments and who would rise above the most negative elements of the presidential cycle. Facing an increasingly narrow path to the 270 electoral votes needed to win the White House, his campaign is shooting for one of the traditionally Democratic state's four electoral votes in the more rural, conservative 2nd District.

White House officials said Obama will be travel to boost Clinton almost every day until Election Day, Nov. 8.

"Look, look, she speaks so badly of Putin, nuclear country, she speaks so badly, and she uses it to keep trying to get votes". Each of you could swing an entire precinct and win this election for Hillary.

The Clinton campaign says the event will highlight that candidate's plan to build an economy "that works for everyone, not just those at the top". "No, no, no, this election is about something much bigger". The now first lady then took a not-so subtle dig at Mrs Clinton, telling voters that "if you can't run your own house, you certainly can't run the White House".

Trump seized on newly public emails in which longtime Bill Clinton aide Doug Band describes overlapping relationships of the Clintons' global philanthropy and the family's private enrichment.

"She speaks very badly of Putin, and I don't think that's smart", he said. In recent months, Obama has taken on a more active role on the campaign trail. "And I know that there are some folks out the who have commented that it is unprecedented for a sitting first lady to be so actively engaged in a presidential campaign". "And that may be true. And that is exactly what her opponent is hoping will happen".

Obama says in the ad that "all the progress we've made these last eight years is on the ballot".

The 52-year-old wife of President Barack Obama has energised the Democratic camp with a series of speeches taking Trump to task for his strident rhetoric and for what she brands his "frightening" attitude towards women.

"Here's where I want to get real".

"I feel really good, energised, working hard", she told reporters aboard her plane Wednesday, her 69th birthday. "If just two or three votes per precinct had gone the other way, Barack would have lost (this) state (and) could have lost the election".

LISA DESJARDINS: Separately, in an ABC interview, Trump faced a question about after the election, and how he'd handle his sharp divide with Hillary Clinton.

But the prospect of a Trump presidency has pushed them into an unlikely political allegiance.

Still, Trump called attention to the statement Sunday in a posting on Twitter, and his supporters have raised it each time Obama praises Clinton.

If Americans want a "unifying force" who "values and honors women", Obama stressed: "Vote right now. None of that matters this time around", she said. Voting is our high.

Although a sometimes reluctant campaigner, the first lady has thrown herself into the race, and the Clinton campaign has deployed her strategically to increase support among young people and blacks, with whom she is especially popular.
