Michelle Obama Rallies Voters In Charlotte

First lady Michelle Obama was in Charlotte this afternoon to help get out the vote for her husband. She reminded supporters waiting in a hangar at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport that President Obama won North Carolina in 2008 by only 14 thousand votes. Mrs. Obama said that's why every vote matters.

Michelle Obama: And it is all going to come down to what happens in just a few key battleground states like right here in North Carolina. Right here. When we win this state with your help and we'll be on our way.

Mrs Obama's speech was webcast on WRAL. Her visit comes one day after former President Bill Clinton spoke to supporters in Raleigh. Polls continue to show a very close race in North Carolina between President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney.
