Joe Biden Coming to Northeast Ohio Sunday

The vice president will make a campaign stop with his wife, Jill, and Jason Mraz, at Lakewood High School on Sunday

Joe Biden is making Lakewood one of several stops in Northeast Ohio on Sunday. 

Along with his wife, Jill, the Vice President is slated to speak at Lakewood High School.

Representatives from the Secret Service began making inquiries with the city’s police and fire departments on Thursday about the vice president’s visit.

On Friday morning, campaign officials confirmed.

The doors at Lakewood High School are slated to open 8:45 a.m.

Multi-platinum Grammy winner, singer, songwriter and Obama-Biden supporter, Jason Mraz, is slated to perform in Lakewood — as well as in Fremont and Lancaster.

Tickets to the Lakewood event are available to the public, but tickets are required to the event. One ticket per person will be given out on a first-come, first-serve basis. Tickets are available from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday. If tickets are still available on Saturday, they can be picked up from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Tickets can be picked up at the Lakewood Field Office, at 11822 Detroit Ave., or at the Cuyahoga County Democratic Party Headquarters at 1466 St Clair Avenue in Cleveland.

The Bidens are expected to speak in Lancaster and in Fremont later in the day.

I saw Obama yesterday claiming the new job numbers are proof that his policies are working and that we are in an economic recovery... Fact is, that is not the truth, or even close to the truth... First, the unemployment rate ticked up to 7.9% and the year-to-date monthly average of 157,000 payroll jobs is barely enough to keep up with population growth -- much less make up for the 8 million jobs lost during the Great Recession. Second, the so-called real unemployment rate (U6) remains elevated at 14.6%, albeit down from 14.7% the prior month. Similarly, the labor participation rate is at 63.8%, up from its multi-decade low but still incredibly weak. Third, average hourly earnings fell a penny in October and average hours worked fell to 34.4 from 34.5 in September. Stagnant wages means "we're not generating income," Reinhart says. "That's a problem in terms of the durability of an economic expansion, which is usually fueled by consumption. To get consumption you've got to generate income." Also, just look at your checkbook. We are paying a lot more for everything now than we did in 2008. The price of gas has doubled. At the same time, wages have gone down, and that's if you're lucky to have a job. In 2008, 25 banks went out of business. In 2012, 48 banks have gone out of business. Almost double the amount. Does that sound like recovery to you? Don't believe the Obama lies!! Romney/Ryan 2012
