According to a text sent out by the Biden campaign on Monday night, they will be holding a “grassroots fundraiser” with actor Tom Hanks.
“I would love the chance to sit down with you and Tom [Hanks] to talk about how we’re going to beat [President] Trump and the Republicans,” the text read. The fundraiser, set to take place Tuesday afternoon at 1:30 pm, encouraged supporters to donate “anything” they can, specifying that “most people are chipping in $25.”
The Washington Examiner has reportedly reached out to the Biden campaign for more information.
The fundraiser with Hanks is happening on day two of the four-day-long virtual Democratic National Convention. Day one consisted largely of discussions on race, coronavirus, and the United States Postal Service.
Monday night’s speaker lineup at the DNC included former First Lady Michelle Obama; Senators and formal Presidential hopefuls Bernie Sanders and Amy Klobuchar; and Republican-in-name-only (RINO) and former Ohio Governor who lost to President Trump in the 2016 Primaries John Kasich.
