The California Democratic Party released TV and radio ads Saturday of Michelle Obama imploring San Diegans to vote for Democrats in Congress on election day.
“San Diego, everything we’ve accomplished in the past eight years is at stake in this election,” said Obama in the ad. “That’s why we need to elect democrats who share our values.”
According to a recent WSJ/NBC poll, Michelle Obama scores higher in popularity than presidential candidates Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump and even her own husband, President Obama. The poll states that Americans prefer her to any other politician.
“Our votes on Tuesday will determine the path of San Diego County and our country not just for the next four years but for generations to come,” said Obama, in a late ad that may allow for a last-minute bump in voter enthusiasm.
When Late Show host and comedian Stephen Colbert spoke with President Obama last October in a mock job prep interview and asked him why he hadn’t advanced further in his field, the president quipped that the only person with a more powerful position was his wife.
Michelle Obama asked San Diegans to vote for Democrats for Congress in the Tuesday, Nov. 8 election, in the advertisement. She also told voters to visit CAdemVote.org for more information.
