Vice President Joe Biden visits Seattle for fundraiser

The Vice President and his wife are in Seattle Monday, making separate appearances. On their agendas: Fundraising, education and jobs.

Vice President Joe Biden will lead a fundraiser for Senator Maria Cantwell and other democratic candidates at the Westin Hotel in the afternoon. The price of admission ranges from $50 to $250.

Cantwell has already raised $4.6 million for her re-election campaign. Her only officially declared opponent, State Senator Michael Baumbartner has raised about $145,000.

At about the same time, Dr. Jill Biden, a longtime educator, will visit the South Seattle Community College hangar at Boeing Field for a panel discussion highlighting education and industry partnerships and jobs.
