Washington (CNN) – After spending the day along in the Gulf Coast region assessing efforts to counter the massive oil spill, Vice President Joe Biden heads to North Carolina Thursday evening to help out the Democratic party.
Biden is scheduled to headline two small dollar fundraisers in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, for the Democratic National Committee. A Democratic party source says the two events are expected to raise a combined $250,000.
In 2008, then-Senator Barack Obama and Biden became the first Democratic ticket to win North Carolina in a presidential election since 1976.

Hey biden, please send nobummer to NC instead of here to the Gulf Coast. We have enough bull here and do not need his.
Good ole Joe"foot in mouth" Biden could care less about the people in North Carolina but he do like their money !!!!
Joe, seriously, take the train.
Alright Joe, way to help the repubs out. I knew you had it you.
Just reading the title of this article makes me laugh!! Let me try it again "Biden to Help Democrats in North Carolina". There it goes again (rolling on floor laughing.....). I just lost my milk through my nose I was laughing so hard. HILARIOUS!!!
Joe Biden is a disgrace to the human race. That is if he is human. Right now I have doubts about his origin.
I hope he gives a lot of speeches... usually works out well for Republicans.
Run for your lives dems in NC ! Old meddling gaffy Joes coming!
This should not be personal...He is on the wrong side of issues. Please Joe, no new taxes, no bigger government, no socialized medicine, no more bailouts and lets get out of afghanistan soon.
If I were a democrat running for office in North Carollina in November I would want Biden as far away from me as possible for so many reasons starting with the albatross that are the Obama policies of bankrupting the country right down to the high chance he will open his mouth and put his foot right in and who needs that kind of help.
Go Biden! Welcome to NC!
Don't think the Dems will have any chance there in 2012.
This guy is full of help: he helped the economy recover and created millions of jobs, he helped win in Afghanistan (thou the Taliban has advances since), maybe he helped Al (massage loving) Gore inventing the Internet. I doubt he will help these guys!!
Biden is welcome in NC.
The President has done well with his agenda. With the Tbaggers behind the GOP, Biden looks great! And when he has a misstep, at least he doesn't claim to be Shakespear. Then there is FAUX News, I have a dozen reasons not to ever vote for a GOP candidate again.
"Biden to help Democrats in North Carolina".............lol, good one.
Yeah, assure a Republican win, send Bite Me...
From his hair plugs to his manicured toe nails, paid for all with your tax dollars!
Try to remember – Charlotte is a city in North Carolina... not that little spider who dies in the children's story.
You're welcome... buffoon.
Biden is a TREMENDOUS help – to the GOP that is.
Pathetic old potty mouthed half-wits should stay in Washington, where they have lots of company!
Joe is a regular guy and thats what the public likes about him. It is obveious that most of the post here today are from the repos. I can tell by the respect that they show for our vice president. If they could not uses inflamitory words to discuss the president and vice president they couldn't make a statment at all. Remember the more educated you are the less likely you will be to vote republican.
...there goes those candidates into the dust.
Welcome Vice Prisedent Biden. We are a Blue State.
And who was on that democrat ticket in 1976? Oh, right.
Good old doofus Joe.
