Former Vice President Joe Biden is scheduled to appear in Detroit on July 24. That’s the last day of the NAACP’s annual convention in the city and shortly before the two-day Democratic presidential debates on July 30 and 31.
The Detroit News first reported Biden’s event. The time and place have not yet been released by the campaign.
South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg is slated to do a fundraiser in Saugatuck on July 21.
The NAACP convention will include several of Biden’s rivals: former U.S. Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.), U.S. Reps. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) and Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), and U.S. Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.). Delaney, Ryan and Booker have previously campaigned in Michigan.
