BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Election Day is almost here, and First Lady Michelle Obama did some last minute campaigning for Lt. Governor Anthony Brown.
Christie Ileto has more on the star power Brown brought in on election eve.
“Don’t be left out,” said First Lady Michelle Obama.
It’s the final rally cry before the polls open.
“All you have to do is show up tomorrow and bring everyone you know with you,” she said.
At Baltimore’s War Memorial, First Lady Michelle Obama gave Lt. Governor Anthony Brown a big boost for Maryland’s highest office.
“Yes, I had already voted early,” one woman said.
“I will be voting, courtesy of Michelle Obama,” another said.
Congressman Steny Hoyer shared his enthusiasm.
“Great! It was terrific,” he said.
“It was great to have Michelle come and solidify that support,” a voter said.
Brown and running mate Ken Ulman spent the day on a campaign swing through the heart of the city to sway undecided voters to lean left.
“The fact that he cares about everyday people like you and me, our kids, our vets, our schools, our jobs…” a voter said.
Brown and his opponent, Larry Hogan, are locked into a tight race for governor—so tight,people are saying every vote will count and endorsements from political heavyweights like the First Lady cam make the difference.
“It was electric,” said one man. “We needed to see and hear from both Anthony Brown and Ken Ulman but we also needed to see each other and to see the enthusiasm to get out tomorrow.”
Still, it’s the enthusiasm from the party’s base the campaign is banking on to get Brown across the finish line.
