WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden is returning to South Carolina to help Democrats on the ballot in November.

The White House says Biden will travel to Columbia on October 14. He'll speak at a get-out-the-vote event for the South Carolina Democratic Party at Allen University, and he'll headline a fundraiser for the state party.

The visit comes as Biden steps up his role in the midterm elections. Biden will be on the road nearly every day next week campaigning for Democrats on the West Coast.

Biden travels frequently to South Carolina, which traditionally holds one of the first presidential primary contests. Biden is considering a third run for president himself in 2016. He was last in South Carolina in May for a commencement speech and a state party fundraiser.
