Dr. Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, will campaign in the Twin Cities later this week. President Obama's campaign says Biden will hold several campaign events in the state on Friday. The campaign has no other details at this time.
This is the first time Jill Biden will be campaigning on her own during the 2012 cycle. She teaches at a community college so it's likely that she'll discuss education issues and college affordability during her visit.
Biden's visit is the first stop made by the presidential campaigns and their surrogates since the political conventions ended last week, although her husband visited Minneapolis and Rochester last month.
