On Monday evening Mitt Romney cancelled all campaign events through today and is even holding a distaster relief event in Ohio to help those who were crushed by Hurricane Sandy last night. President Obama also cancelled campaign events and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said on Air Force one that this "wasn't a time for politics" and that people should focus on responding to the storm. But, Hurricane Sandy wasn't going to stop First Lady Michelle Obama from playing politics yesterday. She sent the following email to supporters in North Carolina and Virginia.
From: Michelle Obama

There's still time to meet Barack and get two of the best seats in the house on Election Night. If you make a donation today, you'll be automatically entered to join us in Chicago for his big speech.
You'll be right in the middle of all the action on Election Night, and if Barack wins, you'll know you played an important part in making that happen and moving our country forward.
We'll fly you and a guest to Chicago, put you up in a hotel, and make sure you're right up front when Barack gives his speech.
What he'll say that night depends entirely on what we do right now.
I don't have to tell you, this election is close.
Barack needs you. Please chip in $5 or whatever you can today:
I know we ask a lot of you. Thank you for everything -- we're almost there.
