Former Vice President Joe Biden is scheduled Wednesday to speak at a $2,700 per person Westside luncheon fundraiser benefitting Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s re-election campaign.

Feinstein won’t be at the fundraiser because the Senate remains in session, her campaign said.

The 12:30 p.m. luncheon at an undisclosed Westside location is hosted by billionaire philanthropist Eli Broad and his wife Edythe. The ticket price coincides with the maximum individual contribution to a U.S. Senate campaign.

Biden served in the Senate with Feinstein from 1992-2009 when he became vice president.

Biden endorsed Feinstein’s bid for a fifth full term on March 29, calling her tenacious and accomplished and praising her for “her hard work, preparation and effective advocacy for California and the progressive values we share.”

Feinstein, 85, is facing 51-year-old state Sen. Kevin de Leon, a fellow Democrat, in the November general election.

Biden is also scheduled to speak Wednesday at a $5,000 per person Beverly Hills fundraiser benefitting his political action committee American Possibilities hosted by entertainment executive Jeffrey Katzenberg, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Biden is scheduled to speak at a rally at Cal State Fullerton on Thursday in support of six Democratic congressional candidates running in districts with Republican incumbents.
