On a trip to New Hampshire Tuesday to promote job-training programs, Vice President Joseph R. Biden brushed off a question about running for president in 2016.

“I’m here about jobs, not mine,” Mr. Biden told a reporter.

The vice president was in Manchester touring XMA Corp., a microwave manufacturer that provides an on-the-job training program. He was accompanied by Labor Secretary Thomas Perez.

Mr. Biden hasn’t announced his plans for 2016, although it’s widely expected he won’t run if former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton does. New Hampshire holds the first-in-the-nation primary.
