GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — First lady Michelle Obama has returned to the swing state of North Carolina to drum up support for her husband's re-election bid.

Obama on Wednesday was enlisting the support of the It Takes One program launched in July. Obama spoke for about 30 minutes to the 2,000-plus crowd. She encouraged the North Carolinians to become more involved in the campaign and to recruit others.

Both the Romney and Obama presidential campaigns have made multiple trips to North Carolina, specifically to its third largest city of Greensboro. In July, Ann Romney was in the city stumping for her husband. Charlotte will host the Democratic National Convention next month.

Obama is scheduled for an evening fundraising event in Raleigh. The event's $250 tickets will go to several Democratic organizations.
