Vice President Biden landed in Atlanta Tuesday morning and attended a fundraiser for Democratic Senate contender Michelle Nunn in the afternoon.
"It’s cold," Biden said as he got off the plane. according to a White House pool report. "Where’s the warm air?"
Biden attended at 1 p.m. fundraiser for Nunn at a home in Buckhead. According to a subsequent pool report, the home belongs to Michael Schulder and Nancy Field, who has given thousands of dollars to Obama and Democratic candidates.
Georgia is one of Democrats' two best pickup opportunities in the battle for the Senate. (The other is Kentucky.) The daughter of former senator Sam Nunn (D), Michelle Nunn has impressed national Democrats so far with her first bid for public office, raising money as a fast pace and preparing for the general election.
The Republican field is crowded in Georgia. Democrats feel with Nunn waiting in the wings to take on a GOP nominee bruised from a tough primary fight, they can compete in November. The state leans conservative, but demographic trends suggest it will grow increasingly Democratic in the coming years.
The fundraiser was closed to the press.
