Vice President Joe Biden visits Atherton

Biden attends fundraiser for Sen. Barbara Boxer Thursday

Vice President Joe Biden was the guest of honor Thursday afternoon (July 8) at a fundraiser in Atherton for California Sen. Barbara Boxer. The event was to begin at 4 p.m., with the vice president arriving in a motorcade that made its way up from Moffett Field.

The event was to be held at the home of Jill and John Freidenrich, with congresswomen Anna Eshoo, Jackie Speier and Zoe Lofgren hosting.

Singer-songwriter Aimee Mann was scheduled to perform.

Sen. Boxer, a Democrat, is in a tight race with Peninsula resident and former Silicon Valley CEO Carly Fiorina to retain her seat in the Senate. She attended another fundraiser Wednesday in Palo Alto.

is this why the northbound on-ramps to 280 were closed at 5pm yesterday?

Yes. Could they try to plan these types of events so that it does not effect rush hour traffic. This is the second time in a month that 280 on ramps have been closed at 5:00pm. Last time it was because the Russian president attended an event at Stanford.
