Nice - Apr 20, 2012 - 20:56
Our online producer @yasmineryan reporting from Nice where Nicholas Sarkozy addressed 10,000 supporters, said:
"Stressing the need for the right to band together, Sarkozy gave special thanks to two front row guests: Bernadette Sarkozy and Rama Yade.
Days after French media reported that her husband, former president Jacques Chirac, would vote for the Socialist candidate, Bernadette told the audience: "Sarkozy needs you!"
Yade, a former member of Sarkozy's government who fell out of favour with his advisers for her outspokenness, also came to show her support."
