(Newser) – Three dollars is about what your average Starbucks latte costs, but in the Obama re-election campaign, that same $3 might just get you a cup of coffee with Joe Biden—not to mention airfare and a hotel room for the trip, reports USA Today. Called, unsurprisingly, "A Cup of Joe With Joe," Biden calls the contest a "grassroots" fundraising effort to fight back against Mitt Romney's "unprecedented" spending. It's a little more low-key than a dinner with celebs—or maybe you'd prefer to sign over your wedding registry?
