Vice President Joe Biden will raise money for South Carolina Democrats on Friday, CNN reports.

Biden will be in the Palmetto State to deliver a commencement speech at the University of South Carolina on Friday. Biden also gave a commencement address at Miami Dade College on May 3.

CNN reports Biden will host a closed-door lunch in Columbia to benefit the state's Democratic Party.

Biden hasn't said if he plans to run in the 2016 presidential election, but he's made stops in several early primary states, including Iowa and New Hampshire.

President Barack Obama has praised Biden, but has not yet endorsed him -- or anyone -- for the 2016 race.

CORRECTION: This post has been updated to reflect Biden will deliver the commencement address at the University of South Carolina on Friday, not Saturday.
