DETROIT (AP) - Vice President Joe Biden is in Detroit to discuss the U.S. auto industry's future and its resurgence since the 2009 federal bailout.
Biden speaks Thursday morning at the North American International Auto Show, which is open to industry and media representatives and welcomes the public starting Saturday.
He met Wednesday evening for dinner at Italian restaurant Roma Cafe with Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan. The city is undergoing the nation's largest municipal bankruptcy, four years after General Motors and Chrysler emerged from their own restructurings.
Biden told reporters after dinner that the Motor City won't get a federal bailout. That's in line with previous statements from the White House, which in September pledged more than $100 million in grants to help Detroit.
Duggan says they talked strategy, not money, during dinner.
