New Orleans, La. -

Vice President Joe Biden will visit New Orleans this weekend. 

Biden was in town last June for the National Association of Black Journalists convention.  Saturday he is coming to help U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu (D-Louisiana) raise money for her re-election campaign.

The vice president is scheduled to host a fundraiser for Landrieu at the Ritz Carlton Saturday evening. Afterwards, Biden will return to Washington, D.C.

Louisiana Republicans say Landrieu should cancel the event because of Biden's gun control proposals. The senator's staff has yet to offer any response to that suggestion.
