RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Michelle Obama will campaign for Hillary Clinton Tuesday during a stop at N.C. State University.

She will speak at the newly reopened Reynolds Coliseum where she will discuss what is at stake in November.

The rally begins at 3 p.m.

CBS North Carolina will have a report on Obama’s stop in Raleigh beginning at 5 p.m.

Obama is slated to stop in Charlotte on Tuesday as well.

She rally at noon at the Charlotte Convention Center, located at 501 S. College Street. Doors open at 9:30 a.m.

Obama will ask voters to visit iwillvote.com to check their registration status.

The first lady will urge North Carolina residents to register to vote and cast a ballot in favor of Clinton during her North Carolina stops.

She campaigned for Clinton in Philadelphia last week where she ripped into Donald Trump.

Obama never mentioned Republican presidential nominee Trump during the rally at LaSalle University. But there was no question that she was warning voters that President Trump would be the same as candidate Trump.

“The presidency doesn’t change who you are, it reveals who you are,” she told the cheering crowd.

She referred to several comments Trump made during and after the Sept. 26 debate, including his apparent acknowledgment that he’s paid no taxes some years. Trump said that makes him “smart.”

Obama is expected to campaign for Clinton until Election Day.

“Experience matters, preparation matters, temperament matters,” she said. “Hillary Clinton has it all. She’s the real deal.”
