Vice president to join Obama in NH next weekend


PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — An Obama re-election campaign official says the president won't be alone during his visit to New Hampshire next weekend.

The Obama for America campaign tells the Portsmouth Herald that the president will be joined by first lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill Biden, on a trip to New Hampshire on Friday.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, did not offer further details on whether the four will appear together or where they will appear.

It was reported earlier this week that Portsmouth Mayor Eric Spear received news that President Barack Obama plans to come to the city Sept. 7 for a campaign stop.
