Phillips told Variety that she has been a longtime supporter of Biden’s, hosting a similar fundraiser in 2007 when he also ran for president.

“I’ve known Biden for many years and I believe in his policies,” Phillips said. “We need to bring our parties together and work together, and he’s proven to be able to do that very successfully.” 

Milano has been a Biden ally during the 2020 campaign, advising him to reverse his stance on the Hyde Amendment, which bans federal funding for abortions. She has also touted his support for the Equal Right Amendment in a campaign email.

Milano said she was “proud to call Joe Biden a friend,” in a series of tweets earlier this year. She shared her support after two women said Biden touched them inappropriately in the past.

“I am proud to call Joe Biden a friend,” Milano tweeted at the time. “He has been a leader and a champion on fighting violence against women for many years, and I have been fortunate to accompany him to events with survivors where he has listened to their stories, empathized with them, and comforted them.”
