Michelle Obama in Miami

The wife of the Democratic candidate stopped by Miami to help raise funds for the campaign.

The candidate’s wife wore white. Not a hint of camouflage.

Campaigning in a linen sheath one week after The New Yorker magazine caricatured her as a black militant, Michelle Obama addressed hundreds of donors in Miami Wednesday in her largest event in Florida so far. About 800 people contributed between $100 and $5,000 to her husband’s presidential campaign.

Meanwhile, Rasmussen Reports show that Mr. Obama has a one-point lead in polling in Florida, up from the seven-point deficit he had last month.

As Obama and McCain trade attacks over domestic and foreign policy, the poll shows that the economy is the most important issue in the election to about half of Florida voters.
