Michelle Obama campaigned at Wharton Field House in Moline, Illinois on Saturday. The First Lady said she was thrilled to be back in Illinois.
Michelle Obama campaigned in a “Get Out the Vote” event for Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn, U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin and Rep. Cheri Bustos.
Obama urged those attending to get to the polls and to encourage their friends and relatives to vote as part of her “1 Million Votes for 2014” initiative.
“This is not about me. This is about you,” Obama said.
She stressed that many are tight races taking place and that every vote counts. She also spoke of the need to continue supporting education and creating new jobs.
She continually advocated for all three candidates, Quinn, Durbin and Bustos. Obama said 10 million new jobs have been created in Illinois in recent years.
“And we are here to keep this state in the right direction,” she said to thunderous applause. “And this state is leading the nation in job creation.”
Illinois is ranked number 42 out of the 50 states in job creation since 2009 when Obama took over.
She was only off by 42.
