A gubernatorial candidate is bringing more campaign star power to Maine.

Mike Michaud is adding President Barack Obama to his list of campaign cohorts. Obama will appear in a handful of states with close gubernatorial races, and states he won in 2008 and 2012.

Obama will travel to Maine, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania in the final week of campaigning. No official date has been set.

Earlier this month First Lady Michelle Obama traveled to Orono to back Michaud. Former President Bill Clinton also traveled to Maine in support of Michaud's bid for the Governor's seat.
