First Lady To Join Obama At Appearances In Ohio

WASHINGTON (October 7, 2010)--President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will make their first joint appearance of the midterm election season on Oct. 17 in Cleveland.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Thursday that Mrs. Obama would join her husband for a fundraiser for Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland and for a previously announced campaign rally later that day in Columbus.

Less than a month before the Nov. 2 elections, Mr. Obama is stumping hard to try to minimize Democratic losses in Congress.

He traveled to Maryland on Thursday to campaign for Gov. Martin O'Malley, and then to a Chicago event for Alexi Giannoulias, who is in a tight race for Mr. Obama's former U.S. Senate seat.
