Next week, Biden will raise money with former President Barack Obama, where prices start at $15 per person.

Earlier this week the Biden Victory Fund has raised $80.9 million in May, even though the Coronavirus COVID-19 has created a paradigm shift in political fundraising campaigns. Last week, Biden held a fundraiser featuring several celebrities including John Legend, Jay Leno, Jennifer Hudson, and Barbra Streisand.
