ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Vice President Joe Biden is headed to Minnesota for a fundraiser for the national Democratic Party.

Biden is due at a Democratic National Committee event in Minneapolis on Feb. 19, a DNC official said Wednesday. The White House also confirmed that Biden would be in Minnesota that day.

The fundraising trip was first reported by the Minneapolis Star Tribune. An invitation obtained by the newspaper seeks contributions of up to $32,400. The fundraiser is being held at the Minneapolis restaurant owned by Gov. Mark Dayton's sons.

Biden was last in Minnesota in August 2012 during the re-election campaign.
