Obama, Clinton Join Biden Fundraiser to Bolster Reelection Campaign

Former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton are enticing Democrats with the prospect of attending a fundraiser alongside them and President Joe Biden next month in New York City.

Obama and Clinton's endorsement of Biden comes amid reports suggesting concerns within the former president's camp regarding Biden's campaign ahead of the general election in November, particularly concerning polling figures and the potential challenge from another former president, Donald Trump, in the upcoming contest.

" 'Folks – I'll be in NYC on March 28th to support @JoeBiden,' Obama announced on social media. 'Who's coming with me? Chip in for your chance to join.' " Obama posted, to which Clinton responded, "Count me in. Who else is going to be there?"

While polling indicates a closely contested election, Biden began 2024 with a financial advantage over Trump. According to Federal Election Commission disclosures, Biden's main campaign committee boasted $46 million in cash on hand at the end of last year, compared to Trump's $33 million.

RealClearPolitics polling averages show Trump leading Biden by an average of 2 percentage points in head-to-head matchups, with 47% support compared to Biden's 45%.

As Biden and Trump gear up for their anticipated 2024 rematch, Biden is scheduled to attend three fundraisers in New York City on Wednesday.

Concerns have been voiced within Obama's circle regarding the structure and strategy of the Biden campaign. S

Some Democrats have criticized Obama for his perceived reluctance to engage actively in the election cycle.

Reports suggest that Obama and his aides have expressed reservations about the efficacy of the Biden campaign, citing deficiencies in state-level infrastructure and campaign headquarters compared to Obama's campaign in 2011.

According to the Washington Post, Obama has raised questions about the autonomy of President Biden's re-election campaign, advocating for the campaign to have decision-making authority independent of the White House.

The efforts come as Trump continues to gain traction in battleground state polls, worrying Democrats that Biden may lose his battle for a second term.
