Excerpted from NBC NEWS: – Declaring “we are going to get this done,” an emotional Michelle Obama rallied a central Florida crowd Monday night, telling supporters on the eve of the election that it’s “all on the line” Tuesday.
“Your president is nowhere near satisfied,” she said, making the pitch for a second term for her husband, President Barack Obama.
The first lady has maintained a busy schedule visiting key swing states since the Democrats’ national convention in Charlotte, N.C., in September.
Almost 4.5 million people in Florida have already cast ballots, taking advantage of early and absentee voting opportunities here. The latest data from the Florida Secretary of State’s office shows that Democrats have cast 1,915,630 votes – giving them a lead against Republicans, who have cast 1,747,977 votes.
But Michelle Obama warned that the president needs every vote he can get.
“Don’t let anybody push you out of line,” the first lady said, telling those who haven’t voted yet to get to the polls early. ”Don’t let any delays deter you.”
