Gomez, Northeast Ohio Media Group Email the author | Follow on Twitter on November 06, 2013 at 9:10 PM, updated November 06, 2013 at 9:27 PM SHAKER HEIGHTS, Ohio -- Vice President Joe Biden stopped here Wednesday evening to help raise money for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. The event capped Biden's itinerary in Ohio, where he toured the CSX Northwest Ohio Intermodal Terminal in North Baltimore to promote infrastructure investments. More details about the fundraiser were not available, but the White House confirmed it was on the vice president's schedule following the CSX appearance. WKYC Channel 3 reported on Twitter that Air Force Two landed at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. CSX, where Biden spoke in the afternoon, is a hub of the National Gateway project, a freight system that connects the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic regions. He addressed a crowd of about 120 people, including local leaders and businesspeople, on the terminal grounds. Biden's tour began with a session inside the CSX terminal's crane-simulator training facility. The vice president's motorcade then proceeded along the terminal's container sorting and laydown area before he, Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx and two CSX executives emerged on foot for a brief walk and photo opportunity for the media. This visit aimed to build on Biden's recent visits to the ports of Baltimore; Charleston, S.C.; and Savannah, Ga. Later this month the vice rresident will visit the Panama Canal.

According to background provided by the White House, the federal government, state governments, and CSX have joined together to invest $853 million – including a $98 million federal TIGER grant – to improve the ability of trains to move cargo across the Gateway. Wednesday's Ohio swing, a day after voters here made choices in local mayoral races and on tax issues, marked the third time in recent years that Biden has traveled to the Buckeye State not long after an election. He visited Toledo after the March 2012 presidential primaries and Euclid after the 2011 vote to repeal collective-bargaining restrictions pushed into law by Republican Gov. John Kasich and GOP legislators. Those trips were strictly campaign stops. Biden is seen as a potential Democratic candidate for president in 2016.
