Obama is speaking to a crowd of 10,000 at Hec Edmundson Pavilion, plus 3,000 in overflow at Husky Stadium.

He says Republicans would take the United States back to “the same agenda that nearly destroyed our economy.” He deployed his usual metaphor of Republicans driving a car into the ditch, Democrats righting it, and Republicans asking for the keys back.

“It’s not as if we didn’t try it, Seattle,” he said. “We tried it for eight years; It didn’t work.”
