First lady Michelle Obama will help Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) raise money for his Senate campaign, the Markey campaign confirmed Friday.

Obama will attend a May 29 fundraiser for the Democratic Senate front-runner, about a month in advance of the June 25 special election. The Boston Globe first reported the news.

Markey easily won the Democratic nomination on Tuesday. He is heavily favored over former Navy SEAL Gabriel Gomez (R).
