By BILL SHEA ( , Messenger News

A visit by Vice President Joe Biden is among the political events slated for Fort Dodge this week.

Biden will speak at the Opera House at the Fort Museum and Frontier Village Thursday, according to Julia Geopfert, the chairwoman of the Webster County Democratic Party.

She said the doors will open at 2 p.m.

Tickets are required for admission. Those tickets can be picked up at the Webster County Democratic party headquarters at 1014 Central Ave. beginning at 6 p.m. today.

Christie Vilsack, the Democratic candidate for the 4th Congressional District, will join Biden. Vilsack was originally scheduled to make an appearance earlier Thursday at the Webster County Democratic headquarters, but that event has been canceled, according to Geopfert.

Geopfert said parking at the Opera House will be limited.

The other scheduled events include an appearance by U.S. Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, and Gov. Terry Branstad. They will speak at 1 p.m. Wednesday in the Webster County Republican Party headquarters, 900 Central Ave.

King and Vilsack are seeking to represent a district which includes Webster County and 38 other counties.

State Rep. Helen Miller, D-Fort Dodge, and her Republican opponent, Matt Alcazar, of Fort Dodge, will participate in a forum at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in the Bioscience and Health Sciences Center at Iowa Central Community College.

They are seeking to represent House District 9, which includes Badger, Clare, Duncombe, Fort Dodge, Vincent and rural areas of northern Webster County.
