PITTSBURGH (AP) — First lady Michelle Obama is scheduled to visit Philadelphia next week for a campaign event.

Her office said she will meet with campaign volunteers next Wednesday, but gave no other details.

She last visited Pennsylvania in April, when she spoke at the 911th Air Wing base outside Pittsburgh to recognize veterans and military families.

President Barack Obama handily won Pennsylvania in 2008 in the contest against Republican John McCain, and the state has supported Democrats in the most recent five presidential elections.
