Biden To Host Virtual Event with AFL-CIO President in Harrisburg
Former Vice President Joe Biden will be spending Labor Day in the Keystone State.
According to a release from Biden’s campaign, the former VP will be joining a virtual event from the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO headquarters in Harrisburg on Monday afternoon to talk with AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, take questions from union members, and “recognize America’s working families on Labor Day.” The event will be livestreamed, starting at 4:15 PM.
Biden is no stranger to appearances in Pennsylvania on Labor Day. In 2015, Biden marched in a Labor Day parade in Pittsburgh.
This event is set to kickoff another busy week in the commonwealth for both campaigns.
Vice President Mike Pence will headline a “Workers for Trump” event in Beaver County and will discuss pro-life matters in a visit to Westmoreland County. On Friday, both President Donald Trump and Biden will be in Shanksville to visit the site of the Flight 93 National Memorial on September 11.
Biden, Pence, and Trump all made appearances in Pennsylvania last week as well.
Biden’s most recent visit to the state was in western Pa last Monday where the Democratic presidential nominee delivered an address in Pittsburgh pinning the blame on Trump for nationwide violence. Pence headlined a “Workers for Trump” event in Luzerne County last Tuesday, where he dubbed Northeast Pa., where Biden was born, as “Trump country.” Trump held a rally in Westmoreland County last Thursday where he touted his administration’s energy policies, while boosting a “law and order” message.
