Biden To Campaign in Erie
Former Vice President Joe Biden will be making an appearance to one of the key swing counties in Pennsylvania on Saturday.
Bidel will travel to Erie, according to a release from his campaign. WJET reports that Biden is expected to hold a rally around 5 p.m., although the location is yet to be decided.
This will be Biden’s second visit to the commonwealth this week. On Tuesday, he delivered an address in Gettysburg calling for national unity. The previous week, he made multiple stops in western PA as a part of the campaign’s “Build Back Better Express” train tour.
Biden’s also slated to be in Philadelphia on Tuesday night to participate in an ABC News town hall. Sen. Kamala Harris’s last campaign visit in the state was on Sept. 17 in Philadelphia.
President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have made appearances in the state recently as well.
Pence headlined a presidential debate watch party in Lancaster County last Tuesday. Two weeks ago, Trump held two rallies in the state at airport hangars- one in Harrisburg and the other in Pittsburgh. Trump was slated to meet with firefighters in Philadelphia last Sunday after IAFF Local 22 endorsed Trump over Biden, but the event was cancelled after the president tested positive for COVID-19.
