WASHINGTON (Reuters) – American Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren has agreed to host a fundraising event for Joe Biden's presidential campaign, the New York Times reported on Saturday, citing three people familiar with the plans.
Warren will host the event online on June 15, the Times reported, saying the three spoke on condition of anonymity.
The senator's promise to abstain from private fundraising events – or even phone calls to wealthy taxpayers – was a key feature of his own campaign to become the Democratic Party's candidate to challenge Republican President Donald Trump in the 3 elections. from November.
The Massachusetts lawmaker often accused other candidates of committing to wealthy donors and of "selling access to their time for money".
Warren was one of the last in the broad field of Democratic candidates to drop out of the race before Biden became the party's presumed candidate.
A Biden spokesman declined to comment. A spokeswoman for Warren did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Saturday night.
