WASHINGTON — Former President Barack Obama has said he’s “all in” for President Joe Biden’s re-election effort. Democrats nervously looking ahead to November say they want to see Michelle Obama playing a bigger role in the campaign. “As former First Lady Michelle Obama has expressed several times over the years, she will not be running for president,” said Crystal Carson, director of communications for her office. Obama supports President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ re-election campaign.”Sources familiar with the discussions say she intends to assist the Biden campaign this fall, as she did four years ago. Search your hearts, and your conscience, and then vote for Joe Biden like your lives depend on it,” she said.
