Washington: US First lady Michelle Obama has heaped praises on Sarah Jessica Parker in a message that she sent to supporters on Monday.

Parker along with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is hosting a fundraiser for the Obama campaign on June 14.

The campaign is raffling off tickets to the event in a contest.
“Sarah Jessica Parker is a loving mom, an incredibly hard worker, and a great role model. She’s one of those people you can’t help but admire,” the Politico quoted the first lady as saying.

“Barack and I are thrilled that we’re invited for an evening at her home in New York next week,” she added.

In an ad that aired during Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards, the ‘Sex and the City’ star had expressed her support for the president.

She called him “the guy who ended the war in Iraq, the guy who says you should be able to marry anyone you want, and the guy who created four million new jobs.”
