Joe and Jill Biden to visit KC today

Couples that tour together, stay together.

That appears to be the philosophy of Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, who are visiting KC today for a pair of very different events.

The VP is attending a highly UNpublicized midtown fundraiser. Ticket price: $10,000 a couple for lunch with the proceeds going to the Obama Victory Fund 2012.

Jill is touring a mock hospital at Metropolitan Community Colleges.

Presumably the Bidens are traveling together.

What's unusual about the Joe Biden event is the lack of any advance notice to the media about the visit. Reporters were given no notice whatsoever about the impending visit of the vice president.

The fundraiser is at a private home, meaning he won't be doing any news conferences.
