Michelle Obama records radio ad for Wendy Davis

🕐 1 min read

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — First lady Michelle Obama has recorded a radio ad for Texas Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Wendy Davis.

The Fort Worth state senator’s campaign said Wednesday that the 60-second spot begins running this week “in multiple media markets.”

In it, Obama praises Davis’ education plan, saying “you have a chance to make a real difference for our children by voting for Wendy Davis.”

She also mentions Davis “fighting to expand Medicaid,” a reference to President Barack Obama’s health care law. Outgoing Gov. Rick Perry and the GOP-controlled Texas Legislature has refused to increase Medicaid access statewide under the law.

Davis’ Republican opponent, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, is favored in next month’s election.

The president is largely unpopular in Texas. Davis had often tried to distance herself from the White House, until now.
