WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- - Michelle Obama is preparing for her first campaign appearance for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Clinton's campaign says the first lady will rally voters behind the former secretary of state during a Sept. 16 event in Northern Virginia.
The location was not announced. Mrs. Obama's task will be to urge all voters, but especially young people, in hotly contested Virginia to support Clinton and running mate Tim Kaine in the Nov. 8 election.
She'll also urge people not to miss the state's Oct. 17 deadline to register to vote.
A few days before Mrs. Obama hits the trail, her husband, President Barack Obama, is scheduled to hold his first solo campaign event for Clinton on Sept. 13 in Philadelphia.
