Michelle Obama will campaign for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in North Carolina on Tuesday, with appearances in Charlotte and Raleigh.

Details of the visit have not yet been announced. RSVP for the Charlotte event HERE. RSVP for the Raleigh event HERE.

The first lady, who will urge North Carolina residents to register to vote and cast a ballot, is highly popular. Americans viewed her more favorably than any of the other speakers at the Democratic National Convention in July, according to Gallup, with 58 percent having a favorable view of her.

On Wednesday, she campaigned for Clinton at La Salle University in Philadelphia, where she criticized Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump without mentioning his name. She’s expected to campaign for Clinton across the country over the next five and a half weeks.

“If a candidate is erratic and threatening, if a candidate traffics in prejudice, fear and lies on the campaign trail … that is the kind of president they will be,” Obama said, according to The New York Times.

Clinton and Trump are locked in a tight race in North Carolina. RealClear Poltics’ average of polls has Trump at 44 percent and Clinton at 43.7 percent.

A poll released Thursday by Raleigh-based Public Policy Polling has Clinton at 44 percent and Trump at 42 percent, with Libertarian Gary Johnson at 7 percent. The poll also found 53 percent of those surveyed thought Clinton won Monday’s presidential debate, while 31 percent gave the edge to Trump.
