Support for 'my girl' Clinton is personal, Michelle Obama says

Donald Trump in Toledo

"Hillary's own campaign said when Michelle Obama speaks out, 'it has a real impact, ' and indeed, we agree - because it was Mrs. Obama who correctly pointed out Hillary Clinton 'certainly can't run the White House, '" Gidley said.

Michelle Obama and Clinton spoke at an event in heavily-contested North Carolina - which is expected to be one of the most important battleground states on November 8.

In sending the first lady there, Clinton's team is hoping she will provide a boost with young people and African-Americans, both key parts of Obama's winning coalition.

"We have never had a more qualified and prepared candidate for the presidency than Hillary Clinton", she said. In recent months, Obama has taken on a more active role on the campaign trail.

"It doesn t get any better than being here with our most incredible first lady, Michelle Obama", Clinton said as she introduced a "woman whose voice we need now more than ever".

However, the site is owned by influential Democrat backer David Brock, who also controls a number of pro-Clinton political action committees.

Clinton told reporters: "I was struck today that Donald Trump was paying more attention to his business than to the campaign".

The late fundraising helps ensure the Democratic nominee can keep her sprawling campaign at full strength in the frantic final days of the race. Someone who is steady, someone who we can trust with the nuclear codes because we want to go to sleep at night knowing that our kids and our country are safe ... They've brought in spouses, former President Bill Clinton and Anne Holton, who's married to veep candidate Tim Kaine.

"I think the character made them smile a bit", Moran said of the Trump supporters who were lined up near the protest. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), she has struggled to convince some skeptical Democrats that she is committed to taking on powerful corporate interests.

"Hillary's mother was an orphan abandoned by her parents".

And when her time in the White House was ending, Clinton began plotting her return to Washington.

The new poll findings are not good news for Trump, Brown said.

Like her husband, Michelle Obama is enjoying strong favorability ratings, making her a valuable asset for Clinton.

The former secretary of State spoke before the first lady, an acknowledgement of her star power this election season.

Although Michelle Obama was critical of Clinton during the hard-fought 2008 Democratic nominating race, any trace of bitterness appeared long behind them. "People knew people who didn't vote".

Mrs Obama used the occasion to talk about Mrs Clinton in the most affectionate terms U.S. audiences have heard so far, calling her "my friend" and "my girl", and once again imploring voters to turn out and elect her in November.

"I am grateful for Hillary - for her leadership and her courage, and for what she is going to do for this country", Obama continued.

"There are so many things I admire about our First Lady", said Clinton.

"I think Michelle Obama may end up being perhaps one of the most influential first ladies when it comes to influence on the American public, whereas Hillary has been one of the most important in terms of achievement in terms of policy".

Huckabee's beef with the couple was first mentioned in his book "God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy", which came out last January. "Look, what is she going to say?"

The crowd screamed. And they screamed louder when Obama busted a move from her chair.

On Monday, the Clinton campaign sent cease and desist letters WFLA-TV in Tampa, Cox Cable in Gainesville, Bright House Cable in Orlando, and WESH-TV in Orlando, demanding the stations stop airing the ad, according to sources familiar with the situation. President Obama won the state in 2008 by a narrow margin and lost it by a larger margin in 2012. They endured beatings and jail times.
