Biden will headline NJDC event


Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Biden will be the keynote speaker at this month’s National Jewish Democratic Council conference in Washington.

The exact time of Biden’s appearance is not yet set, said an NJDC spokesperson, but the conference begins on the afternoon of Sept. 23 and continues all day Sept. 24. The speech will be the first time Biden has spoken in front of a meeting of a national Jewish organization since his selection last month as Barack Obama’s running mate.

Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean will also speak at the parley.
