President Joe Biden ramps up his reelection effort this week with four fundraisers in the San Francisco area, as his campaign builds up its coffers and lays strategic foundations for 2024.

In the back half of June, Biden’s campaign will have more than 20 fundraisers involving him, Vice President Kamala Harris, first lady Jill Biden and second gentleman Douglas Emhoff, according to a person involved in Biden’s travel plans who insisted on anonymity to discuss the schedule.

More than half of the fundraisers are with the Democratic president, who arrived in California on Monday and was greeted by Gov. Gavin Newsom. Biden also will be traveling to New York, Maryland and Illinois. The president hit the themes of his campaign at a Friday fundraising event in Connecticut, saying his goal is to do more to tell voters about his legislative accomplishments with infrastructure, computer chip production and programs for responding to climate change, among other policies.

“There’s a lot we’ve done,” Biden said Friday. “We just got to let many people know we’ve done it and be straight with people. Just be as straight as we can.”

The fundraising blitz follows Biden’s first campaign rally on Saturday in Philadelphia, where he was endorsed by key unions — the event highlighting a pivotal constituency in the largest population center of a critical battleground state. It was meant as an early display of enthusiasm for Biden’s campaign, and a venue for him to interact directly with voters before he spends much of the rest of the month meeting with deep-pocketed benefactors.

The flurry of engagements comes ahead of the end of the fundraising quarter at the end of the month — and Biden’s campaign finance report in July will provide the first test of Democratic donor enthusiasm for his reelection effort.

Biden, unlike former President Donald Trump and other 2024 GOP contenders, has not revealed any clues about his fundraising haul since declaring his candidacy in April. And his campaign launch was timed to avoid having to file a campaign finance report for the first quarter, a historically rough fundraising period.

For the first time in U.S, elections, Biden has joint fundraising agreements with all 50 state Democratic parties and the branch in Washington, D.C., an arrangement that can help maximize donations while minimizing expenses in the early months of the campaign. It’s part of a broader effort to unite a diverse Democratic coalition behind Biden as the Republicans undergo what could be a large and divisive primary.

“While MAGA Republicans burn cash in their primary, competing for whose agenda is the most extreme, the president’s campaign will be capitalizing on the opportunity to raise significant resources,” said Biden’s campaign manager Julie C. Rodriguez, referring to Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan.

Separately, Rodriguez is traveling across the U.S. to meet with donors, local officials and community leaders to help align the coalition. Along with other campaign officials, the tour begins in Atlanta and will include Boston, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and St. Louis.

Not all of Biden’s time Monday and Tuesday in San Francisco is being devoted to the campaign. On Monday, he went with Newsom and other officials to the Lucy Evans Baylands Nature Interpretive Center and Preserve in Palo Alto. He toured the coastal wetland area and announced $600 million for projects to address climate change.

“These wetlands act as a critical buffer between the rising tides and the communities at risk,” said Biden, calling the preserve a “success story” in ongoing efforts to contain the damage from climate change.

    So has anyone noticed to homeless situation in Florida? No matter where you go. Terrible. But governor “anti woke” refuses to see it or do anything as he kowtows to his rich owners.

    If he hates California so much why is he begging for handouts there?

      Good morning Mike,
      Lets all try to stay on topic and just hope the President does not fall down on those slippery human P00 covered Streets Of San Francisco.
      I know in the leftist addled brain trying to flip a topic into a back handed slap onto the Next POTUS, Ron Desantis, seems totally acceptable. So I’m not trying to make this a personal attack on someone who may be suffering under “Extream Dook 4 Brains Leftisim”. So relax Mike this is in no way a personal attack on you. Have an Earl Pitts American day.
      Thank you Mike,
      Earl Pitts American

    Good evening America,
    I called my contacts with the Sketchers Shoe Makers and discussed my concerns regarding our Commander In Chief having a dangerous slip and fall on those human feeces covered Streets Of SanFrancisco.
    My investigators found the streets to be even slicker and more dangerous after a rain.
    My lead investigslator reported the streets to be “as slick as Owl $#IT” which as everyone knows is the slickest of all. Anyway long story short that shoe company had the same concerns and had already developed on “Owl Slick” prototype.
    I purchased a large quantity of these special shoes and had them drop shipped out to SanFran at my own expense in order to keep American’s Commander In Chief safe from a painfull slip and fall.
    Thank you America,
    Earl Pitts “Because Earl Cares” American
