Michelle Obama To Headline Fundraiser For Markey

First lady Michelle Obama will headline a fundraiser for Rep. Ed Markey, the Democratic candidate in the Massachusetts Senate special election, the Boston Globe reported Thursday. 

Michelle Obama is scheduled to appear at a Boston fund-raiser for the Malden congressman later this month, an event that can collect up to $37,600 from an individual donor…


The May 29 fund-raiser is the first major event sponsored by Markey Senate Victory, a joint fund-raising committee created two weeks ago by the Markey Committee and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. Senators Elizabeth Warren and William “Mo” Cowan are listed as the other two hosts. The minimum contribution for the event is $500.

Markey is running against Republican Gabriel Gomez, a former Navy SEAL and private equity investor. The election is on June 25.
