AP Quotes Jellison on Michelle Obama Campaigning for Clinton

The Associated Press quotes Dr. Katherine Jellison, Professor and Chair of History at Ohio University, in a story on “First Lady Michelle Obama Is the Clinton Campaign’s MVP.”

“It’s unusual for a sitting first lady, or a sitting president for that matter, to campaign so enthusiastically for a presidential candidate. They usually take a lower profile approach. This is indicative of how important both Obamas think this election is,” said Katherine Jellison, chair of the history department at Ohio University who studies the first ladies.
