No Conn. campaign stops planned for Biden visit

KENT, Conn. (AP) — There are no plans for Vice President Joe Biden to make any campaign appearances with Democratic candidates when he visits Connecticut for a fundraising event.

The nation's No. 2 Democrat is scheduled to appear at a Saturday reception in Kent. The event is billed as a joint fundraising event to raise money for state Democratic parties in political battleground states.

Connecticut's Democratic Party is not benefitting financially from the event, said spokeswoman Elizabeth Larkin. Tickets range in price from $100 to $10,000. Larkin confirmed there are no plans for Biden to campaign while he's in the state.

Broadway star and television actress Audra McDonald is scheduled to perform at the event, as well as a group of entertainers that includes Christine Baranski, Oliver Platt and Sam Waterston.

Plus Biden's too busy prepping with the debate moderator, whose wedding Obama attended in 1991. Nothing to see here folks .... move along. Let's see if WTNH even bothers mentioning this -

Why Bother! The Democrats are that CT is controlled by a majority of handout takers and union lackeys who keep voting Democrat no matter what to keep their tax payer provided action going..
