Election 2012: Dr. Jill Biden campaigns in Pittsburgh
On Sunday, Second Lady of the United States
Dr. Jill Biden and Florida congresswoman and Democratic National Committee
chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz made a quick stop in Pittsburgh,
Pennsylvania, to campaign for President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.
The primary goal of the congresswoman and Second Lady's speeches was to sway undecided female voters. The women made there point very clear as
several standing ovations were made to applaud them on their speaking.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz began the event by introducing and applauding the Second Lady’s class and personality. Wasserman Schultz also shared a personal story on her battle of cancer and how Dr. Biden was so kind and generous to her during rough times. She also informed the audience about the Obama/Biden campaign and their stance on woman’s health and rights, which Wasserman Schultz said she supported. She also mentioned how she thinks President Obama and Vice President Biden would do a better job at protecting women and their rights than Governor Mitt Romney and Congressman Paul Ryan. The congresswoman talked about many other topics, including healthcare, cancer awareness, and the current argument over the middle class.
Finally, Wasserman Schultz introduced Second Lady Biden, and as soon as Dr. Biden took the stage the small crowd roared. She began where the Congresswoman left off, on women and their rights. She tried to persuade the mostly female audience about voting for and electing her husband, Joe Biden, and President Obama for another four years. She said that electing them for another four years will allow them to get a lot more done and to move the country forward. Dr. Biden also mentioned that women’s rights has been a main focus for America and all of the past presidents, but that Barack Obama and Joe Biden can make a difference in the female community.
As she closed her speech, the crowd gave her and Wasserman Shultz a final standing ovation. Swarms of people started to surround Dr. Biden, and many people got to shake her hand and take a photo with her, too. Second Lady Dr. Jill Biden and congresswoman and Democratic National Committee Chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Shultz definitely made a great impression on many Pittsburgh voters.
