Vice President Joe Biden will headline a fundraiser for Democratic Rep. Frank Kratovil of Maryland on Thursday, October 28.
The event, just five days before voting ends, will take place in Bethesda. It was announced late Friday by the vice president's office.
Kratovil has already had high-level fundraising help from former President Bill Clinton, among others. Biden collected campaign cash earlier this fall for the top two statewide Democratic candidates, Gov. Martin O'Malley and Sen. Barbara Mikulski.
Freshman Kratovil is in a tight race with Republican state Rep. Andy Harris of Baltimore County in the state's easternmost congressional district. The contest has attracted more than $6 million in spending, making it one of the most expensive House races in Maryland history.
