Expect Barack Obama to become increasingly involved in this campaign, as it becomes clear Joe Biden can do little but sit in the basement. Obama is a better campaigner, harder for the Trump campaign to attack, and is in full command of his senses.
According to the Washington Examiner:
The Biden campaign has gleefully touted the virtual event, slated for Tuesday night, since it was announced last week to much fanfare. Along with the Democratic National Committee, the Biden team is also heavily promoting a separate, exclusive meet-and-greet with the former president before the main gathering through a flurry of text messages, emails, and social media posts.
“This is a big one, and I’m not going to lie: I’m pretty excited,” Biden wrote in a note Tuesday.
Their repeated prodding has paid off. But Democrats still lag behind their Republican counterparts in fundraising, with the GOP having more than double in the bank.
About 120,000 guests are expected to log on for the Biden-Obama fundraiser, raising $4 million as of Tuesday morning.
