Vice President Joe Biden has arrived in Boise for his visit to the Special Olympics, about four hours late due to weather delays. The welcoming party greeting him at his plane included Gov. Butch Otter, Lt. Gov. Brad Little, Secretary of State Ben Ysursa, Attorney General Lawrence Wasden and Boise Mayor Dave Bieter. The veep arrived about 2 p.m. Boise time, and was scheduled to head straight to Qwest Arena in downtown Boise to attend figure skating finals and meet with Special Olympics athletes and volunteers.
