Billionaire investment guru Warren Buffett will help fundraise for President Obama's reelection campaign at two fundraising events in Chicago and New York respectively.
Buffett will also be featured at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in New York in late September.
Lately, Buffett's name has increasingly come up in relation to the Obama administration. He wrote a New York Times op-ed in which he argued that the effective tax rate for his income bracket should be higher.
Obama also dubbed a proposal to raise taxes on the wealthy as part of his $447 billion jobs creation legislation the "Buffett Rule." Buffett said he was asked by the administration and approved including his name in the provision's title.
