RACINE, Wis. (AP) — First lady Michelle Obama is campaigning for her husband in Wisconsin, where she tells supporters the president is a man of integrity who'll do what he says.
She addressed an enthusiastic Racine crowd Friday. A local fire marshal says 2,100 people attended.
The first lady also planned to meet with voters in Wausau later in the afternoon.
Her 35-minute speech mostly offered a positive message of President Barack Obama's accomplishments. She also urged people to vote early.
The first lady told the crowd that teachers and firefighters shouldn't pay higher taxes than millionaires and billionaires. She also defended the auto bailout and praised her husband for resisting advice to let Detroit go bankrupt.
A recent poll shows the president and Republican Mitt Romney locked in a virtual tie in Wisconsin.
