Michelle Obama Spoke At ECU's Minges Coliseum To A Crowd Of 6,000

Plenty of democrat supporters were out in full force for First Lady Michelle Obama's speech Wednesday in Greenville, but some undecided voters were in attendance as well.

Thousands of people piled into Minges Coliseum at ECU to hear the first lady speak. She discussed issues like healthcare, employment, and education, and was pretty motivational to at least one swing voter.

"I'm actually leaning her way a little bit, but yeah I am leaning a little democrat right now," said swing voter Eva Falls.

The speech started at 5:30 p.m. and lasted just under half an hour. Swing voters we spoke with say their next step in the decision making process will be to watch the first presidential debate on October 3rd.

In her speech, Obama talked about the economy, the war in Iraq, military families, health and other issues.

Obama earlier spoke at a campaign stop at North Carolina Central University in Durham. She was about 50 minutes behind schedule when she left the Bull City.

The event at ECU was free, but you had to have a ticket to attend.
