Vice President Joe Biden has landed in South Dakota for a prayer service tribute to former Sen. George McGovern.
McGovern, the former Democratic presidential candidate, died Sunday at age 90. He and Biden are former Senate colleagues. Biden is among the political dignitaries expected at a Thursday evening prayer service.
Biden arrived in Sioux Falls about 30 minutes before the service starts at First United Methodist Church. He is scheduled to speak after Sen. Tim Johnson.
McGovern's funeral is set for Friday.
From South Dakota, Biden heads to Wisconsin for campaign events.
