APPLETON, Wis. -

First lady Michelle Obama has returned to battleground Wisconsin as the Obama campaign tries to push the state's 10 electoral votes into the Democratic president's column.

Obama spoke Friday to a crowd of more than 2,000 at Lawrence University in Appleton.

She spent much of her speech citing her husband Barack Obama's accomplishments.

The Post-Crescent reports the first lady drew loud cheers when she hit on health care reform, Pell grants for student aid and seeing through the conclusion of the war in Iraq.

Obama says her husband is best fit to lead since he's lived the American dream himself.

She says the election "could come down to a few thousand votes."
