Vice President Biden comes to Minnesota for Klobuchar fundraiser

MINNEAPOLIS — Vice President Joe Biden is headed to Minnesota to help Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar stock up for the fall campaign.

Biden was to appear Wednesday at a private fundraiser for Klobuchar in Minneapolis. Donors to Klobuchar and the state Democratic Party were being asked to give up to $10,000 each.

Klobuchar has a multimillion dollar head start on her prospective fall opponent. The three main GOP challengers — Kurt Bills, Pete Hegseth and Dan Severson — have yet to crack seven figures in their fundraising.

Klobuchar and her rivals face a weekend deadline to report on fundraising for the first few months of the year. Any money raised Wednesday won't be required to be disclosed until mid-summer.
