ST. PAUL  (AP) – Vice President Joe Biden is headed to Minnesota for a high-dollar fundraiser toward President Barack Obama’s re-election.

Biden was set to appear at a private event hosted by a donor Wednesday, where attendees are being asked to pay $10,000 per couple to the Obama Victory Fund. A Democratic official, who was not authorized to discuss the vice president’s plans for attribution, confirmed the trip.

Biden’s spokeswoman didn’t respond to a message from The Associated Press about the visit or whether there would be any public component.

Biden was last in Minnesota in October for a rally and fundraiser for now-Gov. Mark Dayton. The governor’s office said Dayton was planning to attend Wednesday’s event with Biden.

The Obama-Biden ticket won Minnesota’s 10 electoral votes in 2008.

Minnesota is also home to two potential GOP rivals: Former Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Rep. Michele Bachmann.
