ANN ARBOR, Mich (WLNS) – The President of the United States is back on the campaign trail in Michigan.

He’s urging voters to support Hillary Clinton as thousands of people packed the University of Michigan’s baseball stadium to catch the president’s pitch.

It started with an introduction from Chelsea Clinton.

And as an excited crowd cheered him on President Obama threw his support behind Hillary Clinton.

“We’ve got a chance to continue to make history tomorrow,” said Obama.

With the polls in Michigan so close right now the Democrats brought out the heavy hitters with the president encouraging people to vote for Clinton.

“Hillary Clinton is going to put forth the biggest investment in jobs, since World War II”

Obama stressed that he believes Clinton is ready for the job.

“A candidate who’s steady, a candidate who’s tested. Probably the most qualified person to ever to run for the office,” he told the crowd.

The majority of the crowd was college students.

They grew up with Obama as their president, and many of them are excited to vote for the first time.

“I am ready. I am ready to exercise my right to vote,” said new voter Olivia Caloia.

There have been concerns that Clinton is not connecting with millenials.

“There’s been some doubt for some reason,” adds Caloia. “But we’re absolutely behind her. There’s been some doubt for some reason. But we’re absolutely behind her.”

And supporters in Ann Arbor are banking on a Democratic victory.

“With these last minute efforts by Hillary and her supporters to get out the vote in Michigan, she’s going to blow Trump away,” insists voter Andrew Hausman.

The President wrapped up his visit with the reminder “God bless these United States of America, let’s go vote.”
