VP Joe Biden to keynote Florida Democratic Party convention

Vice President Joe Biden will keynote the Florida Democratic Party's state convention, the party announced today. The Oct. 28 dinner is at Disney's Contemporary Resort Convention Center in Lake Buena Vista.

Biden is currently on a multi-day trip to China, Mongolia and Japan -- his first to East Asia as vice president.

In China, he'll spend 4 days visiting Beijing, Chengdu and Dujiangyan City. In Mongolia, he'll spend a day visiting the capital of Ulaanbaatar, where he may be greeted with a demonstration of Mongolian sports including archery, horse racing and wrestling. Biden will be the first vice president to visit Mongolia since Henry Wallace in 1944. Wrapping up with a two-day visit to Japan, Biden will go to Sendai, where U.S. forces helped reopen the airport after the earthquake this year.
