On Sat., May 5, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama kicked off the Obama re-election campaign with rallies at Ohio State University in Columbus and Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond.
Speaking at the rallies before introducing her husband, Mrs. Obama said: “This journey is going to be long and hard. But that’s how all change happens in this country.”
Barack cannot do this alone. And fortunately, he never has. We have always moved this country forward together. And today, more than ever before, Barack needs your help…He needs every single one of you — every single one of you to give just a little part of your life each week to this campaign…We have come so far, but we have so much more to do. And if we want to keep on moving forward then we need to work our hearts out for the man that I have the pleasure of introducing here today.
