Biden to Campaign in Tampa During GOP Convention

Vice President Joe Biden "will lead the Democratic counterweight to the Republican National Convention by campaigning in the Tampa, Fla., area next week," National Journal reports.

"While it is typical for both parties to hold events during the other party's convention in the same city, it is unusual for a vice president to take part in them. Biden, however, has been a vociferous attack dog for the Democrats, sometimes drawing harsh criticism from Republicans for his fervent remarks. At a rally on Tuesday in Minneapolis, he likened Republicans to 'squealing pigs.'"

The Hill: "Don't call it sabotage, but as Mitt Romney and the Republicans are taking over Tampa for next week's GOP convention, a sizable crew of Democrats will be there as well, working furiously behind enemy lines in an effort to muffle the GOP message."
