DETROIT (TheBlaze/AP) — President Barack Obama said America's wealthy and its corporations "don't need another champion."

During a Democratic campaign rally Saturday night on the campus of Detroit's Wayne State University, Obama also urged voters to back Democrats who are seeking to help the middle class with equal pay for women and a higher minimum wage.

About 6,000 people cheered Obama as well as Senate candidate Gary Peters and gubernatorial candidate Mark Schauer.

Obama has spent little time with Senate candidates this campaign season, kept at arm's length by Democrats struggling in closely divided if not outright Republican states. The only Senate candidate to welcome Obama at an event is Peters, who has a comfortable lead in Michigan polls.

Americans for Prosperity in Michigan got together and made clear their feelings about Obama's policies:

The caption accompanying the organization's Twitter post read: "@afphq activists protest #Obama visit to Wayne State Univ. Rally to defeat @Peters4Michigan #misen #POTUSDetroit."
