President Joe Biden will host a March reelection campaign fundraiser in New York City next month with former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton as guests.
Biden and his Democratic predecessors teased the March 28 event on X Tuesday, the day before he’s expected to visit the Big Apple for three smaller fundraising events.
“Folks – I’ll be in NYC on March 28th to support @JoeBiden. Who’s coming with me? Chip in for your chance to join,” Obama posted on the social media platform next to a campaign ad soliciting donations for the Biden-Harris ticket.
Clinton cheekily replied.
“Count me in,” he tweeted. “Who else is going to be there?”
Biden got in on the joke as well.
“You guys know you can just call me next time, right?” he responded on X.
The fundraiser is expected to be larger than the president’s typical campaign events with small groups of donors and supporters across the country.
But a venue has not yet been selected, according to his campaign team.
Biden has ramped up his fundraising efforts for his reelection campaign since December. His campaign received the largest amount of monthly donations just last month since laughing in April 2023.
The president is expected to land in New York City around 12:40 p.m. Wednesday for the three smaller events and at least two pro-Palestinian groups are already planning protests around his arrival over the president’s support of Israel in its war against Hamas.
Anti-Israel demonstrators have frequently staged protests at recent campaign events to protest US support of the Israeli government.
At some events, the protestors interrupted Biden while he was speaking in order to get their point across.
The commander in chief as well as the Democratic National Committee and their affiliated entities have raised more than $97 million in the final three months of 2023 and had a total of $117 million on hand to close out the year, according to their reporting.
Meanwhile, Biden’s likely Republican challenger, former President Donald Trump, raised about $130 million over the same period but due to spending, ended up with less in the reserves at $42 million to finish 2023.
