WASHINGTON (AP) -- Vice President Joe Biden will raise money for three Democratic candidates while in New Hampshire on Tuesday for a job training event.

Biden's office says he will participate in photo lines benefiting Gov. Maggie Hassan, and New Hampshire Reps. Carol Shea-Porter and Ann Kuster. A photo line is where donors can get pictures snapped with politicians.

All three candidates face re-election this year in a difficult climate for Democrats.

The fundraising is being added on to Biden's visit to a Nashua job training facility. Biden and Labor Secretary Thomas Perez plan to highlight the state's on-the-job training programs. Biden is leading a review of U.S. job training.

Raising money for New Hampshire candidates is a common step for potential presidential candidates. Biden hasn't ruled out a third run in 2016.
