Michelle Obama: Give 'Part of Your Life' to Campaign Because Vote Might Be Close

First lady Michelle Obama, on the campaign trail in Iowa, encouraged supporters to give “part of your life” to the re-election effort while promoting a new Democratic National Committee voter registration website.

“With every door you knock on, with every call you make, with every conversation you have, you need to tell folks about our values,” she said at the Windsor Heights Community and Events Center Des Moines yesterday. “Tell them about everything that’s at stake next November.”

She told the audience “we are blessed” to have President Obama in office, and need to put in the legwork to keep him there.

“He needs all of you to keep giving just a little part of your life each week to this campaign. And he needs you to keep pounding that pavement, and signing up your friends and your neighbors and your colleagues with those ‘I’m in’ cards,” Michelle Obama said.

She added “he needs you to send people to the website” — a voter registration site created by the DNC.

“It’s important to remember that it could all come down to those last few thousand folks we need help get to the polls on November — on the 6 of November to be precise,” she said. “…It might mean registering just one more person per town — just one more.”
