John Morgan to host Joe Biden fundraiser

Fundraiser at Morgan’s Lake Mary house.

Four days after tweeting his endorsement for Joe Biden, Orlando personal injury lawyer and political rainmaker John Morgan announced he’s hosting a fundraiser for the former vice president’s 2020 Democratic presidential campaign on May 21.

The fundraiser is set for the Lake Mary home of John and Ultima Morgan at 5 p.m. on May 21. Tickets range from $1,000 to be a guest up to $25,000 to be a co-host, with proceeds going to Biden for President.

Tickets are available through an online invitation site and inquires are being referred to Biden’s campaign, through Alicia Pardo.

Morgan, champion of Florida’s medical marijuana constitutional amendment and now organizing a minimum wage constitutional amendment, has said he is leaving the Democratic Party, for which he has fundraised for years, but reserved the right to continue to support individual candidates. And he has. In past years, his home had hosted fundraisers for the likes of Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, and Elizabeth Warren. The latter, now a U.S. Senator from Massachusetts, is running against Biden for the 2020 Democratic nomination.

Morgan also has previously hosted a fundraiser for Biden at a hotel.
