VP Biden to dine and raise money for DNC at Bachelor Farmer

Biden’s high-buck appearance — contributions of up to $32,000 — is at the restaurant owned by Gov. Mark Dayton’s sons.

Vice President Joe Biden has a scheduled fundraiser Wednesday night at the Bachelor Farmer, the Minneapolis restaurant owned by Gov. Mark Dayton’s sons.
