According to a press release issued by Obama for America late Wednesday evening Vice President Joe Biden will be in Portsmouth this weekend.


“Following his visits to New Hampshire and Iowa with President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden, Vice President Biden will travel to Ohio on Saturday, September 8 and Sunday, September 9 for campaign events. The two-day swing will include stops in Zanesville, Athens and Portsmouth, Ohio,” the release stated.


“While in Ohio, the Vice President will discuss the choice in this election between two fundamentally different visions on how to create an economy built to last. The Vice President will lay out what’s at stake for the middle class in this election – the choice between continuing to move forward to an economy built to last that’s grounded in a strong middle class, or going back to the same ‘top-down’ economic policies of the last decade that crashed our economy and punished the middle class.”


No details were available at press time about the Portsmouth event. According to the campaign event details would be released later this week.
