Biden’s campaign and the DNC formalized a joint fundraising agreement late last month giving the former vice president more sway over the committee’s fundraising activities. The deal will permit Biden to raise $360,600 from individual donors. From those funds, $5,600 raised will go to Biden’s campaign, and the rest will be given to the DNC. 

Clinton endorsed Biden last month, with the former secretary of State throwing her support behind him during a virtual town hall event on the coronavirus pandemic’s impact on women.

“I am thrilled to be part of your campaign — to not only endorse you but to help highlight a lot of the issues that are at stake in this presidential election,” Clinton told Biden, touting his record as vice president when they served together during the Obama administration, as well as Biden’s time in the Senate.
