VP Biden to speak in Detroit after Labor Day parade

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) -

Vice President Joe Biden will be Detroit on Labor Day for the second time in three years.

Biden will make his 15th trip to Michigan since taking office to speak following the Labor Day parade. He last participated in Labor Day events in Michigan in 2012.

The vice president also will meet with local labor leaders during his third visit to Detroit this year. He was in the city in July to tour a training program with Mayor Mike Duggan and hold a fundraiser for Michigan Democrats.

The event is designed to honor the American worker and usually draws prominent state Democrats.

It has served as an unofficial launch pad for political campaigns in Michigan.
