CLEVELAND — Vice President Joe Biden is making an unannounced stop in Cleveland.

Biden voted Tuesday morning in his home state of Delaware and then boarded a plane for Chicago, where he's joining President Barack Obama to await the election returns.

An hour after takeoff, the small group of reporters traveling with the vice president alerted the rest of the news media that Biden had landed in the Ohio city just before noon.

The stop was described as long-scheduled but unannounced.

Republican candidates Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan also had scheduled Election Day stops in Cleveland at about the same time.

Ohio has become a central battleground in the presidential race.
