Vice President Joe Biden is in Charleston today. Though the state party cannot confirm his reason for being here, local media report that he is attending an election fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee and the Obama campaign. The Charleston Post and Courier reports he will attend a dinner at the Charleston Place Hotel, along with state party officials.
The vice president has many friends in South Carolina. In his most recent visit he honored Sen. Fritz Hollings at the dedication of a library named for him at the University of South Carolina. President Obama has not yet made an official visit to the state.
