First Lady Michelle Obama has joined the President in ads running across the web from the Obama for America 2012 campaign. The change comes amid reports of Mrs. Obama playing a larger role in the campaign.
Display ads from OFA spotted on Facebook and on ad networks including Google’s don’t stray far from Obama’s 2008 campaign ads. Indeed, they feature the “Join Us” call to action, ubiquitous during the last election. However, unlike the ’08 campaign ads, the new ads pair POTUS and FLOTUS, suggesting, “You should join Barack and Michelle Obama.”
Many of the ads are re-targeted through ad networks to people who have visited the BarackObama.com website, and are intended to generate signups to build the campaign’s list of supporters.
It could be part of a broader effort to include the First Lady more strategically in the campaign. In addition to appearing at several recent fundraisers and planning to attend a fundraising lunch in Manhattan as the guest of honor later this month, it was announced yesterday that Michelle and her signature sculpted arms will be seen on the cover of Essence Magazine’s October issue.
