Reunited and it feels so good!
Barack Obama and Joe Biden were back together again Tuesday night to host a virtual fundraiser that raked in over $11M.
With 175,000 coming from grass-roots donors, Tuesday night was Biden’s single biggest fundraising event so far, according to his campaign.
Obama told the more than 175,000 folks logged on to the event that. “help is on the way!”
“I am here to say the help is on the way if we do the work, because there’s nobody I trust more to be able to heal this country and get back on track than my dear friend Joe Biden,” he said to the 120,000 people logged on to the event.
The former President also urged viewers to learn the lessons from 2016 and not take the election for granted. Referencing what he called a “great awakening” among younger Americans pushing for reforms, Obama said that “just because this energy is out there does not mean that it assures our victory and it does not mean that it gets channeled in a way that results in real change.”
“There’s a backlash, that is fierce, against change,” he added.
