Barack Obama is lending his star power to Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s campaign, planning to co-host a couple of fundraisers with Biden’s running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris of California.
Obama, the first black president, is teaming with Harris, the first black vice presidential nominee, to headline two fundraisers for the Biden campaign. Scheduled for Oct. 2, the virtual events will include one for grassroots contributors who donate in small amounts and another for high rollers, who can purchase tickets ranging from $100,000 to $250,000.
News of the Obama-Harris fundraisers was first reported Thursday by Bloomberg.
