First Lady Michelle Obama will join Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail for the first time Thursday in North Carolina.

Obama has already campaigned notably for Clinton, but the Winston-Salem rally marks the first time she’s campaigning with the nominee. Watch the rally live above, scheduled to start at 2 p.m. EDT.

The pair is appearing together to encourage early voting in the state, which President Barack Obama lost in 2012 but where polls show Clinton ahead.
