Former Vice President Joe Biden’s swing through Texas includes a Dallas fundraiser hosted by some of the most prominent trial lawyers and political donors in the state.
On Wednesday the former vice president will have lunch at a Dallas home for an event hosted by Lisa Blue Baron, Dori and Russell Budd, Lisa and Peter Kraus, Majed Nachawati, John Driscoll and Wendy and Marc Stanley.
The event follows Biden’s trip to Houston Tuesday, where Biden is taking part of an education town hall.
The Dallas fundraiser suggest that some Texas donors are not fully behind former congressman Beto O’Rourke of El Paso and former San Antonio mayor and Housing Secretary Julian Castro for president.
O’Rourke thrilled Texas Democrats with his 2018 campaign against Republican incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz, a close contest that galvanized Democrats and led to victories down the ballot
But O’Rourke lost, finishing 2.6 percent behind Cruz. Then months later he entered the crowded race for president.
The El Paso Democrat had seen a bump in the polls, but Biden’s entry into the presidential race has seemed to negatively impact his candidacy and the rest of the large field.
As of Tuesday morning Biden had no public events scheduled in Dallas.
