The White House confirmed on Tuesday that Vice President Joe Biden will be campaigning in Florida during the Republican National Convention, which takes place from Aug. 27-30. GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney will formally be nominated as the party's candidate on the final day of the convention. Biden meanwhile will make a stop in Tampa on the convention's opening day. The vice president will also be making stops elsewhere in Florida on Tuesday. President Obama won Florida four years ago, "but Republicans are hoping the week-long convention will help them recapture the key battleground."
