Fund-Raising Prowess of VP Hopefuls, Did It Influence Biden’s Decision?

Will fundraising abilities be a critical aspect when Joe Biden decides on his choice of Vice Presidential running mate in the forthcoming general election in November? Apparently not as much, because reports just came in that Biden chose Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate.

Financial contributions are seen as silent indicators of real voters supporting Joe Biden’s candidacy, even if only for the purpose of ousting Trump from the Oval Office. The more funds raised by a VP hopeful, the greater the number of individuals backing the members of the electoral college who will vote for the Democratic tandem. Although Trump often boasted of the huge financial backing raised by his campaign team in his behalf, most of the funds came from big donors who in recent months have started withdrawing their financial support.

 

VP Hopefuls Who Achieved Tremendous Success in Raising Campaign Funds for Joe Biden

Joe Biden has earlier remarked that he will be choosing a governing partner and has been holding one-on-one interviews to determine the best pick. In the meantime, and with the vetting process still ongoing, the fund-raising prowess of each VP hopeful is now becoming an important consideration.

Currently, Senator Elizabthe Warren is in the lead, having raised as much as $7.7 million dollar by going along with high-dollar fund raising events that she did not engage in for her own presidential candidacy. In addition, she drew as many as 50,000 attendees to her grassroots event, while also sending emails to her and Biden’s small-dollar list of supporters. The amount is still expected to increase as Warren is scheduled to hold more fund-raising events in Biden’s name.

Sen. Kamala Harris is doing great as well. According to Politico sources , her fundraising activities on behalf of Joe Biden has already raised more than $5 million.

Senator Tammy Duckworth, who after having co-headlined three fundraisers with the Biden couple, as well as after appearing in other events, contributed more than $3 million for the Democratic campaign.

Politico also reports that Susan Rice, former President Obama’s national security adviser and also a potential VP pick, was able to raise funds by simply headlining fund raising events for Biden even without the latter in attendance.
