VIDEO: Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama in Winston-Salem, NC

USA Today:
Eight years after a hard-fought primary battle, it is the wife of Hillary Clinton's onetime opponent who may be the Democratic nominee's most effective campaign surrogate.
For the first time, Clinton was joined on the campaign trail Thursday by first lady Michelle Obama, who appears to be all but clearing her schedule to ensure her husband is succeeded by the former secretary of State.

The rally in Winston-Salem, N.C., with the first lady, described by the Clinton campaign as their “not-so-secret weapon," was meant to encourage early voting in the Tar Heel State.

“Michelle reminds us to work hard, stay true to our values, be good to one another and never, ever stop fighting for what we believe in," Clinton told supporters Thursday.
NBC News:
Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama spoke out against bullies -- both in the classroom and the 2016 presidential race -- in their first joint campaign appearance on Thursday.

"You may have noticed that I have been doing some campaigning for Hillary," Michelle Obama said. "And I know that there are some folks out there who have commented that it's been unprecedented for a sitting first lady to be so actively engaged in a presidential campaign. And that may be true, but what's also true is that this is truly an unprecedented election."

The first lady has been one of Clinton's most effective surrogates this campaign ever since her well-reviewed address at the Democratic National Convention in July. She has become one of the most popular public figures in America and has been deployed to college campuses in swing states to encourage young voters to cast ballots early.

"Seriously is there anyone more inspiring that Michelle Obama?" Clinton said during her introduction of the first lady.
This is probably one of my favorite rallies of 2016....great speeches from both Hillary and Michelle, a massive crowd and a general feeling of victory in the air!

Watch the full video below. Unless it's edited later, Clinton and Obama are introduced at the 35-minute mark:


  1. Love these ladies . God bless and keep you
    Will miss our president and first lady
    Hillary make us proud

  2. girl power, and it's a movement, finally.

  3. It doesn't get any better than this. What a powerful and inspiring sight. After all the years of contempt with which the press has portrayed her, Hillary finally has the best surrogate ever. Love them both.
