President Joe Biden to visit Chicago Monday for fundraiser – NBC Chicago

President Joe Biden will travel to Chicago on Monday after delivering a speech in Wisconsin, the White House announced.

Biden is expected to visit downtown Chicago on Monday to participate in a fundraiser for his campaign, with the Chicago Sun-Times reporting his campaign will raise about $2.5 million.

The president will arrive in Chicago after speaking in Madison, where he will deliver a speech on “cutting costs for Americans,” according to the White House.

The visit comes as Chicago ramps up preparations for the Democratic National Convention, which will be held at the United Center August 19-22. Other events will take place at McCormick Place and other locations, with the city hosting its first DNC ​​since 1996.

Illinois Republicans criticized Biden ahead of his visit, calling the fundraiser an event out of touch with reality, amid questions about the city’s approach to fighting crime and managing arrival of asylum seekers from the southern border.

“As Illinois working families face rampant crime, unchecked illegal immigration and dwindling savings accounts, Joe Biden is heading to Chicago to meet with his elite liberal friends,” a party president Don Tracy said in a statement. “The fact is that the Democratic Party has adopted a far-left progressive agenda and the Prairie State is suffering because of it. »

Protests are expected before the fundraiser in Chicago, with several focusing on the administration’s actions during the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas.

According to USA Today, Biden’s campaign raised $90 million in March, bringing his war chest to $192 million. The Trump campaign and Republican Party said they have $93.1 million available for their efforts to deny Biden a second term.
