DOT chief raising money with Atlanta mayor

Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx is attending a fundraiser with Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed (D) on Tuesday.

The duo, who toured the Panama Canal with Vice President Joe Biden together on Tuesday, will be raising money for the Democratic National Committee.

Entry to the Foxx-Reed fundraiser, which is being at the Atlanta headquarters  of financial firm Invesco, ranges from $100 for students to $5,000 for host committee members.
 
Foxx, like Reed, was a big city mayor in Charlotte, N.C. who was considered a future star in Democratic politics before he was tapped to be transportation secretary by President Obama this summer.
