Obama in Wisconsin

Wisconsin is a blue collar, working class state that is expected to favor Clinton. Over 80% of the population is white, and less than 10% is black. Their voters tend to make less than $50,000 per year and do not hold college degrees.

Regardless of what the pundits say, Obama is campaigning hard in Wisconsin. In our campaign, every vote counts...small and large states. We started to see Obama tap into Clinton's voter base in the Potomac primaries.

Please continue to make calls to Wisconsin, and DONATE whatever you can. We can help Obama sweep the remaining states.

Here is an Obama rally in Eau Claire, Wisconsin on Saturday... FIRED UP & READY TO GO!!

Michelle Obama graces the cover of Newsweek

The opening of the article seems to be right on point. It reads, "She's the one who keeps him real, the one who makes sure running for leader of the free world doesn't go to his head. Michelle's story."

Michelle Obama has been an absolute inspiration to women and men alike -- drawing diverse crowds of over 1,000 people even when she campaigns on her own. This week's article in Newsweek is a must-read for everyone out there who loves Michelle (which is likely, everyone.)
Check out excerpts of the article here on Obama's official website.
And, if you haven't met Michelle yet, you can meet her here.
