Michelle Obama urged parents to vote with their children in mind this Election Day in the First Lady’s first campaign ad for Hillary Clinton. “Our children watch everything we do, and the person we elect as president has the power to shape their lives for years to come,” Obama says in the 30-second ad, which will air in swing states like Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida.
“Hillary has spent her entire career bringing folks together on behalf of our kids, because she believes every child deserves a chance to succeed. Hillary will be a president our kids can look up to.” The ad routes viewers to IWillVote.com, a Democrats-backed site that simplifies the voter registration process.
On Wednesday, Michelle Obama reiterated how Clinton would be a better role model for children than her Republican opponent during a rally in Philadelphia. “When it comes to the qualifications we should demand in a president, to start with, we need someone who will take the job seriously. Someone who will study and prepare so that they understand the issues better than anyone on their team,” Obama said.
