COLUMBUS, Ohio - First lady Michelle Obama plans to campaign next week for her husband in the presidential battleground of Ohio.
President Barack Obama's re-election campaign says the first lady will visit the state on Tuesday, with stops planned at a high school in Columbus and a convention center in Dayton.
Both afternoon events require tickets, which will be available Saturday. Additional details about her visits weren't immediately available.
The first lady's trip to the swing state comes on the heels of campaign stops made this week by the president and Vice President Joe Biden.
Republican challenger Mitt Romney also made three stops in Ohio on Wednesday.
