Vice President Joe Biden is headlining a fundraiser for Michigan Democrats this weekend.
Biden will speak Saturday night at the annual Jefferson-Jackson dinner in Detroit's Cobo Center. Michigan could play a big role in the 2016 presidential election, and Biden has not ruled out a run.
He is traveling to South Carolina in May for another Jefferson-Jackson dinner. The galas are frequent stops for candidates.
Others expected to address Democrats on Saturday are U.S. Sens. Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow, along with state lawmakers.
Past speakers at the Michigan dinner include former presidential contenders John Edwards and John Kerry.

    Getting to hear Biden, Levin, and Stabenow speak all in the same night? If I wanted be lied to all night I can just as easily turn on any news station and get that.

    another 'private' fundraiser paid for by taxpayers money. The government should be reimbursed for the cost of the secret service and travel.
