DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Michelle Obama is urging Iowa Democrats to get out and vote for Senate candidate Bruce Braley.

The first lady attended a rally Friday afternoon at Drake University. She said she was “beyond thrilled” to be there with Braley.

Braley, a four-term congressman from Waterloo, is locked in a tight race against Republican Joni Ernst, a state lawmaker from Red Oak and officer in the Iowa National Guard. They are vying for the seat held by retiring Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin.

Republicans are hoping to win in Iowa in their drive for the six-seat gain they need for a Senate majority.

Obama has been stumping for Democrats in a number of tight races. She appeared in Michigan earlier Friday.
