Joe Biden to attend Nevada fundraiser for Harry Reid

WASHINGTON -- Vice President Joe Biden is coming to Reno next week to hold an event in town as well as attend a breakfast fundraiser for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Reid’s office confirms the Oct. 16 visit, first reported this morning in the Reno Gazette-Journal, which says the senator is seeking the maximum donation of $2,400 per person, $4,800 per couple for the breakfast.

The Republican National Committee jumped on the chance to blast the fundraiser, saying, “Hard-working families of Nevada, not the wealthy few, deserve to hear firsthand from Vice President Biden and Senator Reid on how they plan to turn around Nevada’s ailing economy.”
