Skip to comments.Joe Bidenís campaign seeks new fundraising advisors to prepare for the battle against Trump
Posted on 03/30/2020 5:47:36 PM PDT by Libloather
Joe Bidens campaign is looking to expand its fundraising operation as it prepares to take on President Donald Trump in the general election.
Officials within Bidens organization have discussed bringing in a new group of regional fundraising advisors, including former aides to Sen. Kamala Harris and Pete Buttigiegs campaigns, who could help them expand their donor network, according to people familiar with the matter. These people declined to be named because the talks were private.
Biden had a strong March, raising more than $30 million in online donations, as the coronavirus has pushed his campaign into a fully online platform, including virtual town halls and fundraising events. This shift has made it even more imperative for the campaign to beef up its digital fundraising operation as Trump and the Republican National Committee have amassed a formidable war chest.
The RNC and Trumps campaign, along with their joint fundraising committee, combined to raise more than $86 million in the month of February, according to the RNCs press release. It was their best month of digital fundraising. The Biden campaign raised just over $18 million in the same month, while the Democratic National Committee brought in close to $12 million but is $6 million in debt.

Good keep it up Joe we need you as the Dem nominee
The only thing Biden should be thinking about is a graceful way to exit the race. Because the DNC is not going to allow him to be the nominee. So Joe can exit on his terms or the DNC’s terms.
Don’t bring a knife to a gunfight. Trump is gearing up, Joe will be outgunned.
Paging George Soros !
Me thinks that Biden will never be the Dem party nominee. He will be replaced by someone else this summer. The party higher ups will pick the nominee, possibly Gov Cuomo.
I want to help them. I suggest they get a big group together, hundreds or more, and all meet in a room with no interference, very close quarters, share meals, drinks, straws etc. This will help them unite and improve teamwork. Maybe some communion out of the same wine glass....can’t hurt. Go team!
just confirms that Sleepy Joe cannot rely on the face-to-face, big ticket fundraisers for his campaign but on-line.... problem is that Crazy Bernie is also grifting for campaign cash as well.
Noooooo! We want sleepy Joe to win nomination first.
Way to throw more dirt on your own political grave there, Joe. Nice going.
Joe....how much is the cut and take for the fund raiser?
And we know the polls are always right.
Biden enlisting such proven winners as Harris and Buttigieg is scary, but Trump should really get worried if Biden gets Corn Pop to sign on to the campaign.
Trump could easily knock Joe over with a feather.
the last fundraising team was ineffective because they spent all their time keeping Joe’s hands out of their blouses.
Enter Andrew Cuomo.. stage left.
Yeah, that'll help. Maybe he should set up a meet-and-greet with wealthy potential marks, er, donors, and instead of shmoozing them, he could have a few hundred of those toy vending machines with the crane, you see 'em in Walmart -- but pump the price up to 10K a try, and nicer prizes (not *too* nice).
It was more important to stop Bernie. But with Biden declining visibly day by day, the DNC realizes he also can't be allowed to be the nominee.
Suggest they see there are any donors stupid enough to throw money down that rathole before they hire too many advisors.
