“Campaign 2020: Meet Biden’s Climate Rainmakers”

“Climate change activists have emerged as some of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's most important donors, having hosted some of his biggest fundraising events.

Climate Leaders for Biden, an ad hoc group of deep-pocketed donors, has brought in more than $12 million for Biden's campaign against President Trump and for the Biden Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee that directs money to the former vice president's campaign, the Democratic National Committee and state parties.

The group, which counts as its members some of the environmental movement's major funders, has held three virtual fundraisers since the beginning of June, each with Biden's participation and dozens of attendees. The most recent one was Wednesday (E&E Daily, July 9).

Another group, Clean Energy for Biden, has focused less on high-dollar fundraisers and more on donors in the clean energy business and their allies.”
