Sen. Dianne Feinstein and her husband will be hosting former Vice President Joe Biden next month in San Francisco, based on an invitation obtained by CNBC.

The banner indicates that Feinstein, together with her husband Richard Blum, are co-hosting the event on Oct. 3. They’ll be joined by many other co-hosts such as Denise Bauer, a former ambassador to Belgium.

Feinstein had already committed to backing Biden’s candidacy for president announced his campaign in April. This would mark the first time she has hosted a fundraiser for the former vice president at the 2020 election cycle. Her husband has taken part in various fundraising events for Biden.

“My candidate would be Joe Biden,” she said in January. “I watched him as vice president. I’ve seen him operate. I’ve seen him perform and I think he brings a level of experience and seniority, which I think is really important.”

Feinstein’s California colleague in the Senate, Kamala Harris, is also running for president and has memorably tangled with Biden on the discussion stage.

Tickets for the event start at $1,000 and go up to $2,800. The gathering will be same day as billionaire and real estate executive George Marcus is co-hosting another fundraiser in Northern California. He completed the second quarter increasing $21.5 million and the Real Clear Politics polling average has him before the principal field.

A political spokesman for Feinstein confirmed she’ll be co-hosting the function. A spokesperson for Biden didn’t return a request for comment.

Both have been close for decades. When Feinstein ran for reelection in 2018, Biden attended one of her fundraisers. She eventually went on to win that race in a landslide.
