WASHINGTON-- First Lady Michelle Obama on the political road is asking folks to vote early--and on Thursday will vote early in Chicago, at a location not far from her South Side home, where she spent Wednesday night.
Mrs. Obama--whose father was a Chicago precinct captain-- was in Chicago for fund-raisers for Democratic Senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias and Rep. Debbie Halvorson, Rep. Bill Foster and Dan Seals.
