Over $200M goes to Biden's top outside group to help him win re-election

A significant amount of anonymous funding has been directed towards electoral activity by Future Forward….

President Biden makes an announcement on additional military support for Ukraine in the Roosevelt Room of the White House on Jan. 25, 2023 in Washington, D.C.

This miscommunication occurred on Thursday while Biden was promoting Bidenomics during a speaking engagement in North Carolina.

Over $200 million was raised by the main outside organisation supporting President Biden, who will have a challenging reelection campaign in 2024.

After its success in the 2020 elections, Future Forward was selected by the Biden campaign as the primary outside organisation to raise money to improve his chances. In 2023, it raised $208 million between its super PAC and nonprofit divisions.

The enormous sums, which the group initially disclosed to Politico, suggest that in the run-up to the 2024 elections, Biden will profit from a sizable sum of dark money from unidentified donors. Tens of millions of dollars have recently been sent to Future Forward's super PAC for electoral purposes by its nonprofit, which does not reveal its funders.

According to Caitlin Sutherland, executive director of Americans for Public confidence, "the same Joe Biden who once said 'dark money erodes public trust' is now being propelled by millions in dark money," as she had previously told Fox News Digital. "It's this type of blatant political hypocrisy that the American people can't stand."

As previously reported by Newsreedom Digital, a sizeable portion of its funding went through a network of NGOs that are supervised by the consulting firm Arabella Advisors, which is in charge of overseeing a billion-dollar dark money network. By taking these steps, more secrecy is added, hiding even its initial backers.

The Impetus Fund was one of the dark money organisations that had completely escaped notice. Tax records reveal that the Impetus Fund sent Future Forward USA Action $55.8 million of its unreported funds during the previous election campaign.

Between the 2020 election and June 2023, Future Forward USA Action sent $77 million to the Future Forward PAC, accounting for over 40% of the $181 million the PAC raised in that period. We don't know who those donors are.

Senior White House adviser Anita Dunn stated that Future Forward "really earned its place as the pre-eminent super PAC" to support Biden this time after the organisation spent $141 million on independent expenditures during the previous election cycle.

Dunn previously told The New York Times, "The Biden campaign was impressed by the effectiveness of the ads and the overall rigorous testing that had clearly gone into the entire project in 2020, when they really appeared out of nowhere and started placing advertising."

A source familiar with the discussions told the Post, "It has dispelled anybody who has any doubts about his determination, his energy, and his passion."

"It merely adds a little spice to him. That's excellent. He gains energy from it, which is excellent," they remarked. "And these people who are wondering if he has lost a step, they leave and are like, 'That was great.'"

The story states that other people who Biden has known for a while have attended in addition to his top contributors. The gathering places, which include the Map Room and a private dining room, are not regarded as "official workspaces" but are nevertheless suitable venues for discussing politics.

Nevertheless, according to additional reports from Wednesday, Biden had previously shown the donors the Oval Office. According to Axios, the White House Counsel's office reportedly advised him to cease last year in order to avoid any possible legal problems.

Former Disney CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, a left-wing megadonor who co-chairs Biden's campaign, has brokered the meetings; nevertheless, it is uncertain exactly who has attended. Last year, Katzenberg stated to Reuters that he thought criticism of Biden's age would backfire on people who brought it up, adding that it is his "superpower."

The worries of his top supporters align with those acknowledged by other prominent Democrats, including Hillary Clinton, who has said Biden's age is an issue and people have a right to consider it.

Clinton made the comments last May during a Financial Times panel after the moderator referenced an incident when Biden almost tumbled down a flight of stairs.

"There was that heart-stopping moment when he almost fell over coming down the stairs a day or two ago," the outlet's editor said. "He didn't use a railing, and Jill wasn't there with him." 

"Every time that happens, your heart is in your mouth because these things could be consequential. Is that a concern?" he asked.

"It's a concern for anyone," Clinton responded. "We've had presidents who had fallen before who were a lot younger, and people didn't go into heart palpitations."

"But his age is an issue, and people have every right to consider it," said Clinton. He has a beautiful saying, and I believe it to be true, that says you shouldn't criticise someone for running against God, but rather for running against the alternative. I lean towards believing he is committed to winning; he has a solid track record that few would have imagined three years ago."

Concern over Biden's age was also raised by former Obama advisor David Axelrod among voters in November.

"I don't worry about surveys one year from now. You have to consider them, evaluate them, and make adjustments, Axelrod remarked. However, in 2011 I found myself in a position as a strategist for Barack Obama where we were up against very challenging surveys.”

"The one number in the polling that was concerning, and in the CNN poll that followed after The New York Times poll, had to do with age, and that is one thing you can't reverse no matter how effective Joe Biden is behind the scenes," he added. "In front of the camera, what he's projecting is causing people concerns, and that is worrisome," 

The White House and Biden's campaign did not immediately provide a comment.
