Michelle Obama hits the campaign trail.

Democrats have pulled out what they hope to be their wild card: Michelle Obama.

"This is a serious moment for our country. There is so much at stake," said First Lady Michelle Obama.

The first joint campaign appearance since 2008...a rally of 35-thousand in Ohio, where their party's Senate nominee is trailing by double digits.

"Let's be honest: This is a difficult election. This is hard," said President Obama.

The President's message: Republicans look out for big business. We look out for you.

"That's the choice in this election. That's what we're fighting for,” said President Obama.

Those choices are already being made in states like Nevada where early voting started this weekend.

Texas Senator John Cornyn said, "It's going to be about jobs, spending and debt. Pretty much that simple."

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham said, "It's a rejection of an agenda that scares people. The health care bill, the stimulus package, the financial regulation, all the spending was not what people expected from this president."

Republicans are riding the wave of economic uncertainty.

Democrats are trying to recapture the spirit and success of 2008.
