Vice President Joe Biden’s Minnesota trip next week will include a stop in Duluth, the White House said Friday.
Biden will be in Duluth for an event on domestic violence issues on Thursday, his press office confirmed to the News Tribune. Details of the event were not immediately announced.
Also Thursday, he is expected to travel to Hibbing to stump for Democratic U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan, who is locked in a tight battle for re-election against Republican challenger Stewart Mills and Green Party candidate Skip Sandman.
No further details on the time or location of the Hibbing rally had been released as of late Friday.
Biden last visited the Northland in November 2012, just days before the presidential election. He spoke to a packed house at Superior Middle School and made a stop at Red Mug Coffeehouse and Bake Shop.
