Elizabeth Warren to raise large funds for the President of the Democratic hopeful Biden

WASHINGTON (NYTIMES) – Senator Elizabeth Warren, whose sincere opposition to great value fundraising was central to her presidential campaign, has agreed to host such a donor gathering for the alleged Democratic candidate Mr. Joe Biden, who considers her as his running mate.

The online event will take place on June 15, according to three people with knowledge of the plans, who spoke under anonymity to share the details.

During her presidential career, Ms. Warren expressly promised not to participate in private fundraisers or dial up wealthy donors.

As a progressive in Massachusetts, she favored tax hikes for the wealthy and sometimes criticized sharp contributions to large sums.

Ms Warren’s spokesperson declined to comment. Biden campaign officials did not respond to requests for comment.

As a senator, Ms. Warren built up a network of high-dollar donors and attended fundraising events, building her own war chest before entering the Democratic presidential race.

But in late February 2019, trying to get a handle on online presidential fundraising, especially among progressives Senator Bernie Sanders, an independent Vermont, was looking to rule out large-scale events.

Ms. Warren will now mine her old donor network to help Mister Biden maneuver to become his running mate, a position she said she would accept.

Although she remains ideologically left of Mister Biden, Ms. Warren has come closer to some of his views.

Ms Warren, an advocate of a “single payer Medicare for All” system, has expressed support for a proposal that is more in line with Mr Biden’s position to extend the Affordable Care Act.

Mr. Biden’s other rivals have been helping his fundraising since he became the party’s suspected candidate.

Former Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana raised US $ 1 million (S $ 1.42 million) in an online fundraising on Friday.

Mr. Buttigieg will appear at more fundraising events along with Mr. Biden next week, as will Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota.

Senator Kamala Harris of California, businessman Andrew Yang and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, all former rivals, will appear at Biden fundraising events in June.

Mr. Sanders sent a fundraising call for Mr. Biden to his donor list, but declined to share his list with the Biden campaign.
