Vice President Biden will hold a rally with supporters next Monday in Tampa, Fla., on what will be the first day of the Republican convention.
The Obama campaign announced Monday that Biden would travel on Aug. 27 and 28 to the host city of the GOP convention for a number of events.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said that the GOP would respond strongly to any attempt by Democrats to disrupt their convention.
"I think it's pretty common among parties to play with each other's conventions, and we'll have a pretty big presence in Charlotte as well," Priebus told Buzzfeed on Tuesday. "The nice thing about going first is that whatever they do to us, we can do ten times over to them."
"I'm a big believer in: if they punch us, we put on the brass knuckles and punch back," Priebus said.
The Drudge Report first reported Tuesday that Biden's Secret Service advance team was in Tampa.
Republican officials have said that their first day of the convention will be themed around the idea "we can do better" than President Obama's administration, and will feature speeches from Ann Romney, South Carolina Gov.
