US Democratic presidential nominee has “pulled out all the stops” to campaign with Michelle Obama in the run up to next month’s election, reports Euronews’ Washington Correspondent Stefan Grobe.
“The First Lady is beloved by a large majority of Americans and turned out to be the most popular, if not the most effective Clinton surrogate,” he said.
“It’s the first time Clinton and Obama campaigned side-by-side, and the first time ever two first ladies shared the stage to drum up support for one of them running for president. And that stage was in North Carolina which was not picked accidentally,” continued Grobe.
“The typically Republican state was won by Mitt Romney four years ago, but could flip this time. Knowing this, Donald Trump is spending a lot of time in North Carolina as well. If he loses here, it’s game over for him – even if he carries Florida and Ohio.”
