Vice President Joe Biden visiting Iowa next week, will speak about economic proposals at Drake


DES MOINES, Iowa — Vice President Joe Biden will travel to Des Moines next week.

The White House announced Friday that Biden would visit Drake University in Des Moines on Thursday. Biden will give remarks about President Barack Obama's economic policies.

Biden will also take part in a discussion at Des Moines Area Community College about attending college and preparing people for the workforce.

Biden is considered a possible Democratic candidate for president in 2016. He has said he will make a decision about running later in the spring or summer but has done little to set up a campaign.
