LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Battleground Nevada is drawing another visit from a top Democratic campaign star.

Campaign officials say First Lady Michelle Obama is scheduled to make an Oct. 26 visit to Las Vegas.

Details weren't immediately disclosed Thursday.

Word of the visit follows Vice President Joe Biden campaign rallies Wednesday in Reno and Thursday in Las Vegas.

Former President Bill Clinton visited Las Vegas last week and Biden has been to the state's largest city three times in four months.

President Obama has made nine campaign appearances in Reno and Las Vegas.

Michelle Obama also spoke earlier this month at the University of Nevada, Reno.

Early voting begins Saturday in Nevada, a state with six electoral votes considered crucial in the presidential election between Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney.
