BALTIMORE, MD - OCTOBER 25: Former U.S. President Barack Obama gathers with former U.S. President Bill Clinton and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) prior to funeral services for late U.S. Representative Elijah Cummings (D-MD) at the New Psalmist Baptist Church October 25, 2019 in Baltimore, Maryland.

Barack Obama: 'Who's Coming With Me?'

The announcement came through social media on Tuesday, with Barack Obama posting on X: "Folks - I'll be in NYC on March 28th to support @JoeBiden. Who's coming with me?"  

Bill Clinton responded, "Count me in," as he expressed his intention to attend as well. In response to their posts, Joe Biden quipped: "You guys know you can just call me next time, right?" 

The fundraiser, featuring the three Democratic leaders, is slated to take place in New York City on March 28.

Approval Ratings of Joe Biden

Barack Obama and Bill Clinton remain popular among Democrats, and their approval ratings after year three of their presidencies are higher than Joe Biden's at the same point in his presidency. Earlier this year, reports said that Obama had engaged in discussions with Biden regarding the structure of his reelection campaign.

Despite polls showing voter concerns over his age, high inflation, and handling of geopolitical issues like the Israel-Hamas conflict, the reelection team of Biden and his Democratic Party said last month that they raised more than $97 million from October to December of 2023.

Biden and former President Donald Trump are already setting their sights on each other ahead of a possible general election rematch in November.
