Munoz is the Finance Chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which would explain his connection to Biden.
Biden officiated his first wedding in August, presiding over the nuptials of two longtime White House staffers, Brian Mosteller and Joe Mahshie, according to a White House spokesman. The ceremony took place at the Naval Observatory, the vice president’s official residence.
Biden posted a photo of the ceremony on Twitter, captioning it, “Proud to marry Brian and Joe at my house. Couldn’t be happier, two longtime White House staffers, two great guys.”
Jill Biden also tweeted of the event, “Love is love!”
After the couple asked Biden to officiate their wedding, he obtained a temporary certification from the District of Columbia to perform the ceremony, which was attended by the grooms’ immediate families.
The politician was an early proponent of same-sex marriage, first endorsing it publicly in 2012.
