The son of Vice President Joe Biden will headline the N.C. Democratic Party convention later this month.
Beau Biden is the Delaware attorney general and an Iraq war veteran. He is a top surrogate for President Barack Obama and has visited the state recently to help push the Democratic ticket.
He will speak at the Jefferson-Jackson dinner June 16.
For what it's worth, the state Republican Party responded with this pop-culture spin:I’m sure when NCDP reached out to the White House the response was simple: 'we didn’t just meet you, and this is crazy. But here’s Beau’s number, call him, maybe.' And as a result they sent Beau Biden, who they hope is politically distant enough from the Administration that he won’t be asked about the scandal."
