    “Today we want to honor their legacy and continue their work to ensure that every eligible American casts their vote, work that is far from finished,” Says Michelle Obama in a video released on to youtube. “There’s too much at stake to sit on the sidelines, not just in this election but in every election, and we need your help right now.”

    Michelle is said to visit the following states during her campaign: Detroit, Los Angeles, Biltmore, Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, Las Vegas, New York, Pittsburgh, Nashville, Houston, and Milwaukee.
