The donation drive by Mr. Biden’s allies is the latest indication that he expects to rely on the backing of some of the Democratic Party’s wealthiest contributors, many of whom have held off on donating to other contenders in anticipation of Mr. Biden’s entry.

The pursuit of big donors could be politically risky for Mr. Biden in a Democratic primary already infused with outrage about the influence of the wealthy in politics. Some of Mr. Biden’s rivals, including Senators Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, have effectively sworn off high-dollar fund-raising altogether.

The West End is Greenville’s epicenter for the pressures of gentrification, and it was from that platform Friday that Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders spoke on what he considers solutions to an affordable housing crisis that he said spreads across the country.

“This is an issue we don’t discuss enough,” Sanders told a crowd of about 200 at the West End Community Development Center on South Main Street during an event billed as a forum on poverty. “Believe me, it’s not just a Greenville issue. It’s a national issue.”

The 77-year-old U.S. senator from Vermont referenced his time as mayor of the city of Burlington, to answer a specific question about how to solve negative impacts of gentrification on the West Greenville and Greater Sullivan neighborhoods.
