ABC’s Whoopi Goldberg to headline Biden fundraiser with Sen. Tammy Duckworth

“The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg and country music star Sheryl Crow will headline a virtual fundraiser on May 28 for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, according to an announcement from the campaign.

The virtual event will be moderated by Goldberg and Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.).

Tickets for the event start from $250, with co-chairs committing to raising or donating $100,000.

The evening will also feature “virtual conversations and performances by Joe Walsh, Sheryl Crow, David Crosby, and Rufus Wainwright,” according to the campaign.

Goldberg’s “The View” falls under ABC’s news division, creating a possible conflict of interest.

ABC News division members are barred from making political contributions.

The 64-year-old “Sister Act” star also performed at a fundraiser for then-President Obama in 2011.

Goldberg became moderator of “The View” in 2007, replacing Rosie O’Donnell.

The Hill has reached out to ABC News for comment.
