First Lady Michelle Obama greeted by nearly 2,000 supporters at Bradley Tech H.S.
MILWAUKEE - First Lady Michelle Obama is visiting the Milwaukee area Thursday afternoon. Mrs. Obama started speaking at Bradley Tech High School at 2 p.m.
Mrs. Obama told a crowd of nearly 2,000 that her and President's Obama's goal isn't just to win in November.
"It's important to remember that we're doing this because of the values we believe in. We're doing this because of the vision of this county we all share," said Mrs. Obama.
The first lady told supporters that teachers and firefighters shouldn't pay higher taxes than millionaires and billionaires. "We believe hard work should pay off," said Mrs. Obama to loud cheers and clapping.

After the Bradley Tech High School speech, the first lady will visit victims of the deadly shooting in Oak Creek.
Amardeep Kaleka lost his father in the temple massacre. He told TODAY'S TMJ4 that no matter what Mrs. Obama says, the fact that she's showing up, says it all.
"Taking the time out to do this, that says a tremendous amount," said Kaleka. "So the words are just, I mean, they're icing on the cake, but it's what she's doing."
