WASHINGTON–It’s very rare for the First Couple to campaign together–and they are today, Wednesday, in Iowa–the state where, as the Obamas’ like to say, was where it all began–with the 2008 caucus win validating the Obama candidacy and putting him on the path to the White House.
While introducing Obama in Duboque, Mrs. Obama heard someone in the crowd yell out “Whitney Young,” a reference to Chicago magnet high school she attended. “Go Dolphins,” she said in a back at ya, a reference to the name of the school teams.
Statistics: This is the first time they have campaigned together in Iowa this cycle and the first time they have campaigned together since the May 5 official kick off rallies in Columbus, Oh. and Richmond, Va.
