Pretty much every other crowd in America would have burst out laughing. But this is the Congressional Black Caucus we’re talking about.
Charlotte, North Carolina (CNN) – The reminder from the first lady needed no additional explanation. “62 days.”
As Charlotte woke up to dismal skies and the Democratic National Convention Committee was forced to change venues for Thursday because of forecasted bad weather, the pressure was on as Michelle Obama told excited crowds in separate remarks before the African American Caucus and the Hispanic Caucus that she was tired from her convention speech last night, but that the fight for re-election was urgent.
Speaking first to the African American Caucus crowd gathered in a large hall at the Charlotte Convention Center Wednesday morning, the first lady thanked the supporters for all their work but warned that the fight wasn’t over, saying “we’re going to need every single one of you out there.”
Obama emphasized the last four years, citing her husband’s “wisdom and experience” telling the caucus members “my husband has been an extraordinary president.”
