CHICAGO — First lady Michelle Obama returned to the campaign trail Wednesday for the first time in nearly two years, raising money for an Illinois Democrat locked in a close race for the U.S. Senate seat once held by her husband, President Barack Obama.

Russ Feingold is one lucky Senator. She’s opening her campaign runs in Wisconsin, but you know she’s gonna CLOSE the deal there too.
She had me fired up! It gives me chills remembering the energy of the campaign of 08. I’m ready for more…

Michelle Obama Helps Raise $400,000 for Dems

First Lady Michelle Obama returned to her hometown Chicago Wednesday to help raise nearly $400,000 for the state’s Democratic congressional candidates and to cast her early votes for the Democrat seeking to fill her husband’s former Senate seat.
“I’m thrilled to be back in my hometown, Chicago,” she told a crowd of 200 donors at Chicago’s University Club attending a fundraiser for Democrat Alexi Giannoulias. “I get to sleep in my own bed tonight.”
Giannoulias is vying for President Barack Obama’s old Senate seat, which is currently occupied by Sen. Roland Burris. Burris, who was appointed by controversial ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich, opted not to run for a full term in 2010.
Michelle Obama’s swing through Illinois as part of the Democrats’ “Blue Illinois 2010” push was her first day on the first real aggressive campaign/fundraising tour she’s been on in the White House.
