DETROIT (AP) -- Vice President Joe Biden plans to attend a working dinner with Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan during a visit to the city.

The White House says Biden will travel Wednesday to Detroit and attend the dinner Wednesday evening. He also is scheduled to attend an afternoon Michigan Democratic Party fundraiser for gubernatorial candidate Mark Schauer and U.S. Senate candidate Gary Peters.

On Thursday, Biden is to attend the North American International Auto Show. The White House has said that Biden will discuss the future of the U.S. auto industry and "highlight its strong recovery following the tough restructuring and shared sacrifice" under the 2009 federal bailout.

News media, industry and other previews for the show began Monday, and the show opens to the public Saturday though Jan. 26 at Cobo Center.
