Biden To Visit Philly for ABC News Town Hall
Former Vice President Joe Biden returns to Pennsylvania this week to participate in a town hall.
This will be Biden’s third visit to the state in just over one week. Last Tuesday, the former VP delivered an address in Gettysburg calling for national unity, while he visited Erie on Saturday to tout his economic agenda.
The previous week, Biden made multiple stops in western PA as a part of the campaign’s “Build Back Better Express” train tour. Sen. Kamala Harris’s last campaign visit in the state was on Sept. 17 in Philadelphia.
President Donald Trump will also be in the Keystone State on Tuesday night for a rally in Johnstown. Trump’s most recent visit to the state was in Harrisburg where he held a rally on Sept. 26. Earlier that same week, Trump held a rally in Pittsburgh. Trump was slated to meet with firefighters in Philadelphia two Sundays ago after IAFF Local 22 endorsed Trump over Biden, but the event was cancelled after the president tested positive for COVID-19.
Pence’s most recent visit to the state was when he headlined a presidential debate watch party in Lancaster County the night of the first presidential debate.
Both Biden and Trump previously participated in town hall events in Pennsylvania during September. On Sept. 15, Trump visited Philadelphia for a town hall hosted by ABC News, while two days later Biden visited Scranton for a town hall hosted by CNN.
