CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden has arrived in Charlotte, N.C., for his Democratic Party's national convention.

Biden and his wife, Jill, landed Tuesday afternoon. They did not speak to reporters. The vice president is set to accept his party's nomination for a second term on Thursday evening. He planned no public events before then.

His wife, on the other hand, has a busier schedule. Jill Biden was scheduled to visit various breakfasts and lunches with delegates.

First lady Michelle Obama was set to address the convention on its opening night Tuesday. President Barack Obama planned to accept his party's nomination for re-election on Thursday night, the gathering's final night.
