Vice President Joe Biden hold a fundraiser for the S.C. Democratic Party before he addresses University of South Carolina's commencement on Friday, party officials told The State.

Biden will headline a noon lunch at the Capital City Club, party spokeswoman Kristin Sosanie said.

Contributions amounts to attend the lunch were not available.

Biden is the USC commencement speaker at 3 p.m. in Colonial Life Arena. Sosanie said state Dems asked the vice president if he could speak at a fundraiser soon after his USC address was announced last month.

Biden, considered a 2016 White House prospect, was the keynote speaker at the state Democratic party's Jefferson-Jackson fundraising dinner last year.

No word if he's bringing the yellow Corvette.
