Back when she was swinging on wrecking balls and licking hammers you would never have guessed Miley Cyrus would be acting as a surrogate for the potential first female president in U.S. history. But, there she was on Saturday, going door-to-door at the dorms at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, talking to students about the importance of getting out to vote on Nov. 8 and urging them to vote for democrat Hillary Clinton.

Cyrus, 23, who wore an appropriately patriotic red, white and blue outfit featuring a giant blue bow bikini top for the occasion was mobbed by students on campus as she made her way to the dorms.

Miley wasn't the only pop star out on the trail working for Clinton this weekend.
