Joe Biden and Tom Hanks held a virtual fundraiser together on Tuesday — gathering $750,000 in 24 hours, per the campaign — that marks the first of a three-piece fundraising sequence they’re calling “Grassroots Fest.”
Why it issues: The Biden campaign continues to rake in cash, even sooner than debating President Trump in September.
- And Biden is drawing even extra eyes to his virtual occasions, because the campaign talked about that 10,000 folk watched the match with Hanks.
Closing week, the campaign raised $26 million in the first 24 hours after it presented Sen. Kamala Harris as Biden’s operating mate.
