Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, visited Los Angeles Thursday afternoon as part of a West Coast re-election campaign fundraising swing.
Biden was in San Francisco Wednesday and attended another event there Thursday morning before he and his wife headed to Reno, Nev. and then on to Los Angeles.
While Biden attended a private campaign event, Jill Biden was scheduled to take part in a 4 p.m. roundtable discussion at USC about the Building Capacity in Military-Connected Schools Program, a four-year, $7.6 million project based at the USC School of Social Work and funded by the Department of Defense Education Activity.
According to the White House, the program addresses the special needs of students from military families. The roundtable discussion is considered part of Biden's work with first lady Michelle Obama on the Joining Forces initiative to provide assistance for military families.
The vice president was also expected to attend a meeting with business leaders to discuss the economy and efforts to create jobs.
