- With a little more than a month until the November elections, reaching out to voters in key battle ground states, like Wisconsin, is one of the Obamas top priorities.
Michelle Obama reached out to voters in Appleton Friday afertoon.
The First Lady spoke in front of about 2400 people at Lawrence University.
She talked about her husband's record on supporting women's issues like health care and contraception.
"As President, you have got to be driven by the struggles, hopes, and dreams of all of the people you serve. As President you have to have a strong inner compass. A core commitment to your fellow citizens. That's how you make the right decisions for this country. That's what it takes to be a leader," said Mrs. Obama.
This is Mrs. Obama's second visit to Wisconsin in a little more than a month.
She was in Milwaukee a few weeks ago meeting families who lost loved ones in the Oak Creek Sikh Temple Shooting.
