Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign trip to Nevada has been postponed, the Obama for America campaign announced Sunday night.
Biden had been scheduled to speak at campaign rallies Monday in Reno and Tuesday at the Culinary Academy of Las Vegas.
The vice president now will travel to Reno on Wednesday for campaign events, according to the statement from President Barack Obama's campaign. Biden's trip to Las Vegas, the campaign said, would be rescheduled. The statement did not give a reason for postponing Biden's appearances Monday and Tuesday in Nevada, but the White House schedule indicated Biden would be traveling to Penn Valley, Pa., to attend funeral services for former Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter, who died Sunday.
Prior to coming to Reno on Wednesday morning, Biden will campaign in Greeley, Colo.
