The Clinton campaign is sending Miley Cyrus to knock on doors in one swing state in an effort to get millennials to the polls.
The singer will campaign for Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine this Saturday at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va. “As an advocate for LGBTQ rights, gender equality and environmental issues, Cyrus will knock doors to speak to students about the high stakes in this election for millennial voters, laying out Clinton’s vision for an America that is stronger together,” the campaign said in a press release.
The campaign didn’t specify if she plans to venture out into the surrounding suburban neighborhood to knock on doors or whether she’d stick to the university’s dorms.
Clinton has a healthy 10-point average lead in a head-to-head matchup with Trump in Virginia, though an Emerson poll last week found her only 3 points ahead. Her average lead narrows slightly when Gary Johnson and Jill Stein are added to the polls.
It’s just part of the campaign’s heavy push to drive younger voters to the polls in the final days of the campaign.
Earlier this week, the campaign announced the Love Trumps Hate Performance Series with “a number of artists who will energize our supporters and encourage them to turn out to vote on Election Day or to take advantage of early voting options in their states,” according to the Clinton camp’s announcement.
Today, they announced that rock band The National will play their hometown of Cincinnati on Nov. 2. “At the concert, the band will perform and urge Ohioans to support Clinton and her vision of an America that is stronger together by voting early or on Election Day,” the campaign said. “Over the final weeks of the campaign, Ohio voters will hear from The National and other surrogates that Clinton has the experience and steadiness to bring people together and get real results – and that Donald Trump is temperamentally unfit and unqualified to be president.”
Katy Perry will perform at a Clinton get-out-the-vote event in Philadelphia on Nov. 5. That same day, Jon Bon Jovi will perform in Tampa. Bon Jovi is also playing Pittsburgh on Oct. 27 as part of the Clinton concert series.
Jennifer Lopez, calling the election “one of the most important in our lifetime,” will play her Clinton concert Oct. 29 in Miami.
