Day 3 in Denver : Sen. Joe Biden to Join Michelle Obama for Economic Roundtable with Governors and Working Women Tuesday

The Obama campaign today announced that Democratic Vice Presidential nominee, Senator Joe Biden, will join Michelle Obama for a roundtable discussion in Denver on Tuesday, for his first major Democratic National Convention Appearance in Denver . Together, they will hear the stories of women from across the country and discuss the economic challenges facing women and families. In this discussion, Senator Biden and Mrs. Obama will share the Obama/Biden plans to strengthen the economy and provide economic security for America ’s families.

Senator Biden and Mrs. Obama will be joined Tuesday by Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano, Washington Governor Chris Gregoire, and Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius.

“As President, Barack is determined to change Washington so that instead of just talking about family values, we actually have policies that value families. Policies that make it easier for working parents to support, care for, and raise their children. Policies that strengthen the middle class and create new economic opportunities for women and families,” said Mrs. Obama.
"These have been eight tough years for working women and their families. When Barack Obama is President, we’ll have a leader in the White House who won't just repair the damage of the last eight years but will stand with women and help working families on every issue from jobs and wages to health care and retirement savings," said Senator Joe Biden. "The fight for economic fairness is personal to all of us. It's who we are, and this November we have as clear of a choice as I can remember between the status quo and policies that will move us forward together."

Throughout the campaign, Mrs. Obama has hosted roundtable discussions with working women across the country to hear their stories and bring their concerns and questions back her husband and his campaign. Obama has recently shed light on the unique challenges that military spouses face juggling the same pressures their non-military peers endure, while coping as single parents while their loved ones are deployed overseas.

Tomorrow, the campaign will circulate a 12-page Blueprint for America ’s Working Women and Families, detailing the Obama/Biden agenda to help women balance work and family, to keep themselves and their families healthy, and to prosper in a changing economy.
