The man who was chosen for the vice presidency over U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd will visit Hartford Dec. 11 to raise money for the embattled senator.
Just two months after President Barack Obama came to Stamford to help Dodd raise $1 million for his election bid, Vice President Joe Biden will host a luncheon for Dodd.
“We expect this event to be an entertaining one, with a lot of good-natured ribbing, as well as some serious talk about the work Chris is doing for the people of Connecticut and the country, while partnering with President Obama and Vice President Biden,” Jay Howser, Dodd’s campaign manager said in a statement.
The fundraiser will be held at the Connecticut Science Center and tickets for the event will be $500 per person.
“We’re thankful that Vice President Biden has taken time out of his busy schedule to come back to Connecticut in support of Chris Dodd,” Howser said.
The latest poll numbers show Obama’s visit to Connecticut at the end of October didn’t do anything to help boost Dodd’s poll numbers.
Seventy-five percent of voters said Obama’s visit didn’t make a difference, while seven percent said it made them more likely to vote for Dodd and 17 percent said it made them less likely to vote for Dodd.
