First Lady Campaigns with Blumenthal

This morning, First Lady Michelle Obama appeared with Attorney General Dick Blumenthal in front of 800 supporters at the Palace Theater in Stamford, Conn. The Connecticut Post reports that Mrs. Obama’s speech focused on the president’s record rather than the attorney general’s:

The first lady said the president remains committed to reform in health care, education, veterans’ aid, clean energy initiatives and other issues.

She also told the audience not to lose faith in her husband’s vision for the country, despite change not coming as quickly as some had hoped.

“Many of us came in this expecting to see all the change we talked about to happen all at once,” she said. “But the truth is, it’s going to take a lot longer to dig ourselves out of this hole than any of us imagined.”
