VP Biden to be in Tampa as RNC opens

SHARE

Vice President Joe Biden is planning to be in Tampa next week at the start of the Republican National Convention.

An Obama campaign announcement says Biden will be attending events in Florida on Monday and Tuesday, including a stop in Tampa on the convention’s opening day.

President Barack Obama won Florida four years ago, but Republicans are hoping the week-long convention will help them recapture the key battleground.

The campaign announcement didn’t detail what other cities in which Biden will be appearing.
