There are over a  hundred thousand NRA members and Second Amendment supporters in North Carolina who deserve to know that Mrs. Obama  believes that re-electing Senator Hagan is key to enacting President Barrack Obama's anti-freedom agenda.

Excerpts from Michelle Obama’s remarks:

Obama went on to say that said that people could make a "huge difference" in the North Carolina election by writing a "huge check."
