First Lady To Visit Swing State Ohio On Monday
First Lady Michelle Obama plans to return next week to the battleground state of Ohio to campaign for her husband.
An Obama campaign official says the first lady is scheduled Monday to stop in Cleveland and Delaware, in central Ohio. Additional details have yet to be released.
The first lady’s trip comes on the heels of President Barack Obama’s visit to the swing state. The president held an evening rally Tuesday at Ohio State University in Columbus.
Michelle Obama was in the state last week to kick off the start of early voting. During her speech at Cincinnati’s downtown convention center, she reminded people that every ballot was key in the contested state.
