LAS VEGAS (AP) - Vice President Joe Biden is the scheduled
keynote speaker at an upcoming National Council of La Raza annual
conference in Las Vegas.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/MpHrAc ) the
meeting July 7-10 will be the first in Nevada for the Latino group.
The state is seen as election battleground in the race for the
White House in November.

La Raza Vice President Ron Estrada says Nevada Republican Gov.
Brian Sandoval will deliver a videotaped speech because he'll be
out of town during the conference.

Several other Obama administration officials are set to appear,
including Attorney General Eric Holder, Housing Secretary Shaun
Donovan and consumer protection chief Richard Cordray.

La Raza invited GOP presidential challenger Mitt Romney, but his
campaign hasn't confirmed whether he'll attend or send a
representative.
