Biden to talk job training in New Hampshire

WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden is heading to New Hampshire, an important state in the presidential nomination process, to discuss on-the-job training programs.

The vice president's office says Biden and Labor Secretary Tom Perez will be in Nashua on Tuesday. They plan to promote the state's training programs that rely on partnerships with businesses willing to take on trainees.

President Barack Obama has directed Biden to lead a government-wide review of federal job training programs. New Hampshire traditionally holds the nation's first presidential primary. Biden hasn't ruled out a third presidential run in 2016.
