President Obama rallies in Michigan

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT, MI (WNEM) - A huge crowd showed up in Detroit to see President Barack Obama on Saturday, Nov. 1.

President Obama visited Wayne State University campaigning for gubernatorial candidate Mark Schauer and U.S. Senate hopeful Gary Peters.

More than 6,000 people showed up for the rally.


The president stuck to key party issues including helping the middle class, equal pay for women and raising the minimum wage.

He ended his speech urging voters to get to the polls and vote on Nov. 4.

“I want you to feel a sense of urgency these last three days.  The biggest corporations don't need another champion. The wealthiest Americans don't need another champion. You do," the president said.

Obama has spent little time with Senate candidates this campaign season. Peters is the only Senate candidate to welcome Obama at an event.
