Biden in Jersey Fundraising for Obama

Couples will pay $10K for dinner. Proceeds will go to the Obama Victory Fund.

Vice President Joe Biden will be in New Jersey to attend a fundraiser Tuesday night.

Couples will pay $10,000 for dinner at the Cresskill home of public relations and lobbying firm executive Michael Kempner.

A campaign official tells The Record newspaper money raised will go to the Obama Victory Fund. It's a joint committee of the re-election campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

The newspaper reports Kempner is one of President Barack Obama's top "bundlers" capable of gathering large amounts of contributions.

Federal Election Commission records show Obama's re-election campaign fund has already raised $1.2 million in New Jersey.
