Vice President Joe Biden will campaign in Southwest Virginia next week, according to President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign.
Biden is scheduled to hold events in “several cities in southern and southwest Virginia” on Tuesday, Aug. 14 and Wednesday, Aug. 15, the campaign said. Specific locations for the Biden stops have not been disclosed. Biden will campaign in North Carolina on Monday.
Obama made a campaign appearance in Roanoke last month and Republican candidate Mitt Romney held an event in Salem in June. Romney also will be in Virginia on Saturday, holding events in Norfolk, Ashland and Manassas.
