UPDATE: First Lady Michelle Obama speaks in Appleton Friday


APPLETON (WKOW) -- First Lady Michelle Obama made a campaign stop for her husband in Appleton on Friday. She spoke to supporters at Lawrence University.

The First Lady says the President is driven by the struggles, hopes and dreams of all of the people he serves.

Michelle Obama says the economy has come a long way from when her husband took over in office, when she says the U.S. was losing 800,000 jobs a day.

"Yes, we have a long way to go to build our economy, but understand we have had 30 straight months of private job growth under this President, good jobs," Michelle Obama said.

The First Lady says together we will continue to move America forward and the economy will continue to improve.

"Together, slowly but surely, we have been pulling ourselves out of that hole we started in," the First Lady said. "Three-and-a-half years we've been moving forward, we've been making progress and we're beginning to see that change we can all believe in."


APPLETON (WKOW) -- First Lady Michelle Obama will travel to Wisconsin on Friday to speak to grassroots supporters.

This will be her second visit to the state in the last month. Mrs. Obama plans to speak at Lawrence University. She is expected to encourage unity before the November 6th general election. Mrs. Obama also wants to promote voter registration.

The First Lady's event is free and open to the public, but tickets are required because of limited space.

WKOW will bring you updates online and tonight on 27 News at 5, 6 and 10.
