First Lady Michelle Obama will make campaign fundraising visits across the nation next month, including a stops in California on behalf of U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco.

The White House announced today that the First Lady will be in San Francisco on Monday, Oct. 25 for a fundraising event for Pelosi; she’ll then head for Los Angeles to do a fundraising dinner for the Democratic National Committee’s Women’s Leadership Forum on Tuesday, Oct. 26, and then fundraising events with Boxer on Wednesday, Oct. 27.

“We’re thrilled that in the closing days of the campaign, the First Lady will be coming to California to campaign with us and urge Californians to go to the polls,” Boxer campaign manager Rose Kapolczynski said in a news release.

The First Lady’s other fundraising stops earlier in October will benefit U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wisc.; U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo.; and U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash. She’ll also be raising money for Alexi Giannoulias, the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate in Illinois, and will do an event for Rep. Debbie Halvorson, D-Ill.; Rep. Bill Foster, D-Ill.; and Illinois congressional candidate Dan Seals.

President Barack Obama came to California to raise funds for Boxer in April and May; Vice President Joe Biden helped her raise money in July.
