WESTERVILLE, Ohio (AP) -- Michelle Obama says the presidential campaign is about choices involving the economy, health care and college education.
Obama told a crowd of around 2,000 at a suburban Columbus, Ohio, high school gymnasium on Tuesday that the country must decide whether to go forward with the initiatives her husband has undertaken or let the progress slip away.
She said the country is better off because of the passage of the Affordable Care Act, the return of troops from Iraq and the auto bailout.
The first lady planned a second rally in battleground Ohio at the convention center in Dayton later Tuesday.
Her visit follows campaign stops made last week by the president and Vice President Joe Biden.
Republican challenger Mitt Romney also made three stops in Ohio on Wednesday.
