THOMASVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- Vice President Joe Biden is visiting
North Carolina this week to join his wife in stumping for the Obama
Administration's push for community colleges.
The White House said Monday that the vice president will join
Jill Biden and Labor Secretary Hilda Solis at Davidson
County Community College in Thomasville on Friday. That will mark
the end of a three-day bus tour through key election states for
Solis and Jill Biden.
Their message is that community colleges have an important role
in training workers to meet emerging business needs.
Jill Biden was a community college instructor for 18 years.
Solis is a former community college trustee
The tour has one North Carolina stop after rolling through Ohio,
Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia.
