Biden to rally for Lentz (UPDATED)

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden has plans to attend a rally in support Bryan Lentz, the Democratic candidate in the 7th Congressional District race, on Wednesday morning.
The rally will take place at the Radnor High School gymnasium, according to a news release from the Lentz campaign. The event is open to the public and registration begins at 9 a.m.

The event appears to have been canceled. There is no word from the Lentz campaign as yet, but a missive from Republican candidate Pat Meehan questioning the cost for such a rally - and it's timing during school hours - might have been the culprit. 
The release from Meehan is as follows:

DREXEL HILL, PA - In light of reports that Vice President Joe Biden is coming to Radnor High School to campaign for Bryan Lentz, the Meehan for Congress campaign today called on Lentz to disclose who is paying for this trip.
"According to information from the Lentz campaign, the Vice President will hold a blatantly political rally during school hours where students and faculty will attend. Radnor High School is a public school, funded with taxpayer dollars, and Bryan Lentz should be required to reimburse taxpayers for all costs associated with this political trip," said Bryan Kendro, campaign manager for Pat Meehan.
A typical vice presidential visit requires extensive local security and the exorbitant costs of his travel requirements. Voters deserve to know who is paying for this campaign junket.
