    President Barack Obama probably doesn't have to worry about attracting votes in the LGBT community.

    First Lady Michelle Obama will be stumping for her husband in Chicago on June 26th, co-hosting a fund-raising lunch alongside Glee star Jane Lynch, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

    Tickets range from $250 to $5,000 for the soiree at a location to be determined, although you'll need to pony up $2,500 for a photo.

    Lynch, a suburban Dolton native, has been a vocal supporter of Obama, narrating a campaign video in which the president expresses support for LGBT rights.

    Glee creator Ryan Murphy is also on board with the campaign, hosting a $40,000 a plate dinner at his Los Angeles home last week, attracting the likes of Julia Roberts, Ellen DeGeneres and the president himself.
