Vice President's wife to campaign in Michigan this Saturday

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) - President Barack Obama's re-election campaign says the wife of Vice President Joe Biden will speak at events in three Michigan cities on Saturday.

The campaign says Jill Biden will appear in Battle Creek, Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo. It says details on her appearances will be announced later.

The stops come during a planned tour during which the vice president's wife will appear Friday in Minneapolis and Sunday in Pittsburgh.

The vice president has been a frequent visitor to Michigan, with three stops in Detroit this summer.

He campaigned at Detroit's Labor Day rally, spoke at Detroit Renaissance High School on Aug. 22 and addressed the American Federation of Teachers' Detroit national convention July 29.
