The event was closed to reporters. Afterward, Biden praised Quinn and Emanuel for efforts to increase the minimum wage.

Quinn has made raising the minimum wage a cornerstone of his campaign. The Chicago Democrat faces a challenge from businessman Bruce Rauner.

Biden is expected at a Quinn fundraiser later Monday.

Earlier in the day New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stopped at Rauner's headquarters and attended GOP fundraisers.
