March 25, 2014 - 2:33 AM

NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden is coming to New Hampshire to discuss jobs but the visit likely will stir talk of a possible run for president in 2016.

Biden will be joined Tuesday by Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez in Nashua where they will visit a New Hampshire Works Center.

Politicians who visit New Hampshire, which conducts the nation's first presidential primary, automatically invite speculation about their future. Biden has not said what his plans are for 2016.

Biden ran for president in 2008 but dropped out before the New Hampshire primary, won that year by another potential 2016 candidate: Hillary Rodham Clinton. President Barack Obama won the state's general election twice.

The New Hampshire Works Center connects unemployed workers with career counseling, computer access and training at local businesses.
