Eye On Boise

Biden visit delayed by weather

Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to Idaho is being delayed a few hours due to bad weather, the AP reports. Biden is leading a Presidential delegation that is expected to arrive in Boise today, and the schedule features several events affiliated with the Special Olympics World Winter Games. Biden was initially scheduled to land in Boise mid-morning, but White House officials say that has been pushed back at least two hours due to bad weather back East. The first stop on his visit was to be the finals of the figure skating competition at Qwest Arena in downtown Boise. He is also expected to speak at a reception for some of the athletes, their families and volunteers. Joining Biden is U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Olympic figure-skating medalists Scott Hamilton and Michelle Kwan.
