WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House says Vice President Joe Biden is heading to South Carolina for Easter weekend.
The vice president and his wife, Jill Biden, were to arrive Thursday evening in Kiawah Island, near Charleston. He's not planning any public events while he's in town.
Biden has strong ties to South Carolina, and spent a weeklong vacation on Kiawah Island in 2009.
Biden will return to South Carolina in May when he headlines the annual Jefferson Jackson Dinner, a fundraiser that the South Carolina Democratic Party is holding in Columbia.
