Vice President Biden in San Diego campaigning for Scott Peters

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Vice President Joe Biden is scheduled to come to San Diego Friday night to appear at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser and campaign for Rep. Scott Peters, D-San Diego, who is embroiled in a close race for re-election.

According to the White House, Biden will come to San Diego and attend the DNC event at 6:30 p.m. at a private residence.

The Peters campaign announced that Biden will speak at a kickoff rally for a get-out-the-vote effort on Saturday morning at the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers in Kearny Mesa.

Dave McCulloch, a spokesman for the campaign of Peters' Republican opponent, former San Diego Councilman Carl DeMaio, said Biden's appearance shows that Peters is a "rubber-stamp" for President Barack Obama's policies.

According to several Nevada news outlets, Biden is scheduled to appear for candidates in Las Vegas on Saturday after he leaves San Diego.
