Jim Mowrer, the Iowa congressional candidate is getting help from none other than the US vice-president Joe Biden who has said that he is planning a fundraiser for him.
The White House has said that while the vice president has raised money in this fashion for Democratic committees, it is quite rare for him to do so for individual candidates. The House added that Biden will be attending the private event on Tuesday which is to be held at a home in Washington.
Not the first event
Despite the rarity, this is not a first for Biden towards benefiting Iowa Democrats. Just last week, the vice president had traveled to Iowa to participate in a major annual fundraiser that frequently draws potential presidential candidates.
The caucuses at Iowa kick start the presidential primary season every four years and Biden has not ruled attempting a third run for presidency in 2016.
