Vice President to visit his hometown of Scranton tonight


SCRANTON — Vice President Joe Biden is heading back to his old stomping grounds in Pennsylvania for some Fourth of July festivities.

Biden is making a campaign swing Tuesday night through Scranton, the city where he spent his early years. Biden told The Times-Tribune of Scranton that he plans to watch the fireworks on Courthouse Square with his family Tuesday night.

He also told the newspaper he expects to make a stop by his boyhood home.

The visit is being billed as a campaign stop, with Pennsylvania expected to be a key battleground in the race between President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney.
