VP Biden Cancels Plan to Come to RI Because of Son's Condition

Vice President Joe Biden has canceled plans to headline a Newport fundraiser Thursday for the Democratic National Committee and to appear during a Salve Regina University event honoring Nuala Pell, the widow of the late senator Claiborne Pell.

The change of plans are due to how Biden's son, Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, is being evaluated for a medical problem in Texas.

Senator Jack Reed plans to fill in for Biden during the event honoring Nuala Pell.
