Vice President Joe Biden will meet with American Jewish leaders in Florida to make the case for the Iran nuclear deal.

Biden, who is pondering a campaign for the Democratic nomination in the 2016 presidential election, will appear at a small round-table event in Miami on Sept. 3, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.

Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, helped convene the meeting, according to the Journal. Wasserman Schultz, who is Jewish and represents a district with a large Jewish population, has not yet announced whether or not she will support the deal, which lifts sanctions in exchange for Iran curbing its nuclear program.

The Israeli government and many American Jewish organizations oppose the deal, as do most congressional Republicans. Congress will vote in September on whether to approve the deal reached between six world powers, including the United States, and Iran. President Barack Obama has vowed to veto any legislation aimed at blocking the deal.

Numerous Jewish Democratic fundraisers are expected to attend next week’s meeting with Biden.

Biden also plans to host a Rosh Hashanah event in Washington, D.C., after Labor Day.
