LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Vice President Joe Biden is slated to deliver the keynote address Thursday at the national convention of the League of United Latin American Citizens at Caesars Palace.

The convention started Monday and ends Friday.

Biden's wife, Dr. Jill Biden, spoke at the group's convention in Orlando last year. President Barack Obama, who was a senator at the time, spoke at the group's 2008 convention in Washington.

"We are particularly pleased that Vice President Biden will attend and give remarks at our pinnacle event for youth members," added LULAC National President Margaret Moran.

The LULAC speech is the first of two slated for Biden in Las Vegas in a two-day span.

On Friday, the vice president will address the meeting of The United State Conference of Mayors at Mandalay Bay.

Nearly 200 mayors will attend the meeting, which begins Friday and ends Monday. Economics, immigration, school safety, municipal bonds and housing and help for returning veterans are among the topics to be discussed at this meeting.

The vice president last visited Las Vegas in October, when he spoke at the Culinary Academy of Las Vegas, and, later the same day, surprised students at Matt Kelly Elementary School in North Las Vegas.
