MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — President Joe Biden will be in the Twin Cities this weekend to honor man he called a “dear friend and mentor.”
The president is one of several lawmakers who will speak at the service for former Vice President Walter Mondale, who died a year ago at the age of 93. Mondale also served as Minnesota attorney general, a U.S. senator and ambassador to Japan.
Sunday’s memorial service will be held at the University of Minnesota.
Biden last visited Minnesota in early March, when he travelled to Duluth-Superior to promote his $1 trillion federal infrastructure law.
