Joe Biden fundraises in Kansas City and Indiana

Washington (CNN Modified) - While his wife visits a Kansas City community college , Vice President Joe Biden will hold private fundraisers Monday in Kansas City and in Indiana.

The Kansas City fundraiser will be a luncheon at a private residence, with ticket prices starting at $5,000 and the Munster, Indiana event will also be held a private residence, with ticket prices starting at $250, an Obama re-election campaign official told CNN.

The money raised at the two gatherings will go to the Obama Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee of the Obama re-election campaign, the Democratic National Committee and several state Democratic parties.

The Obama re-election campaign and the DNC brought in a combined $53 million in March. The campaign had $104 million cash on hand as of April 1. Obama's 2008 campaign for the White House broke all records by raising nearly $750 million.

Then-Senators Barack Obama and Joe Biden won Indiana in the 2008 presidential election, and narrowly lost Missouri.
