PHOENIX -- Vice President Joe Biden was in Phoenix Thursday for a fundraiser.

He spoke at a private luncheon in the Heard Museum downtown to add cash to President Barack Obama's re-election campaign, saying that the Commander-in-Chief has a "real shot at winning Arizona."

Biden touted the economic stimulus package that pumped millions of dollars into Phoenix, and joked around with Mayor Greg Stanton.

Biden was taken back to Air Force Two after a couple of hours. The Democrat did not have any public appearances scheduled in the Valley.

The event drew more than 100 of the party faithful at $500 a plate.

Presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney is set to hold a rally in Tempe on Friday.
