The events will mark the first official fundraisers for the pair since the California senator was named Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's running mate.

The Hill has reached out to the campaign for comment.

Obama is the most powerful surrogate for the Democratic ticket in the final weeks of the campaign.

The coronavirus pandemic has limited campaign events this year, compared to 2016 when Obama hit the campaign trail for then-Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and stumped in battleground states including Ohio and Florida. However, Biden allies have been strategizing how best to deploy the former commander in chief.

The outlet noted Obama and Harris have been longtime political allies, with Harris campaigning in Iowa for the then-Illinois senator during the 2008 presidential primary when she was San Francisco district attorney.

It's the second time in four years that a justice has died during an election year, though that eight-justice court was not asked to referee any election disputes in 2016.

The Biden campaign's current financial advantage over President Trump's campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC) has reached more than $141 million. Tim Murtaugh, the Trump campaign communications director, said the president's campaign and the RNC started this month with $325 million in cash.
