According to the White House, Biden will speak at West Los Angeles College in Culver City on Friday morning “to discuss the importance of helping Americans go to college and get the skills they need to succeed.”

Obama unveiled his “America’s College Promise” proposal earlier this month, and he is expected to promote the idea — which has already been blasted by Republicans — during his State of the Union address tonight.

Biden will be in Irvine on Saturday to deliver the keynote speech at the Patient Safety, Science and Technology Summit at the Hotel Irvine, 17900 Jamboree Road.
