Biden fundraises in Missouri and Indiana

Washington (CNN) – Vice President Joe Biden heads to Missouri and Indiana Monday to raise campaign cash.

The vice president will be the center of attention at fundraisers in Kansas City, Missouri and Munster, Indiana. The Kansas City fundraiser will be a luncheon at a private residence, with ticket prices starting at $5,000 and the Munster event will also be held a private residence, with ticket prices starting at $250, an Obama re-election campaign official told CNN.

The money raised at the two gatherings will go to the Obama Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee of the Obama re-election campaign, the Democratic National Committee and several state Democratic parties.

The Obama re-election campaign and the DNC brought in a combined $53 million in March. The campaign had $104 million cash on hand as of April 1. Obama's 2008 campaign for the White House broke all records by raising nearly $750 million.

Then-Senators Barack Obama and Joe Biden won Indiana in the 2008 presidential election, and narrowly lost Missouri.

    Joe need to get all the money he can, the rich folks smells four time the tax cuts they got from bush coming their way from mitten. They will do every thing they can to get this money, you think the income gap is stupendous now, wait until they get this tax money from mitten. Mitten have to repay all these super pack spending their money to get him elected. Lesson we can afford mitten to vacuum out the money from our spenders who support small businesses, because small businesses cannot run to China like their international counter parts, small businesses depends on local spenders to keep them afloat and keep their employees, and since small businesses hires 75 percent of Americans, they are vital to our economy success. Big corporations wont invest in places where the labor cost is four time higher than China, and we cannot afford to lose our middle class, because 10 dollars an hour workers will have to car pool, house pool, and grossery pool to make ends meet. Our middle class are the only ones that don't have to pool to make ends meet.

    Vice President Biden, keep reminding us that the President carries/has a big stick :). The flip flopper is limp and useless.
    We already know he has guts . . bin laden is dead!
    BTW if the $250M makes the same mistake that McCain made in 2008 good luck. Remember firing bishop, it's not just a woman on the ticket it's the right woman. You and your party have done and said horrible things about women in the last two years. You can't take it back.
