Biden To Visit Scranton for CNN Town Hall

Former Vice President Joe Biden returns to Northeast PA this week to take part in a town hall. 

On Thursday night, Biden will be in Scranton for a CNN town hall, moderated by Anderson Cooper. The town hall will begin at 8 pm and will “feature a socially-distanced live audience, will follow Pennsylvania’s guidance and regulations regarding the coronavirus pandemic,” according to CNN

The Scranton Times-Tribune reports that crews were working this past Saturday to set up a stage and lighting in the parking lot at PNC Field for the upcoming event. 

While Biden will face questions from voters in Northeast Pa on Thursday, Trump will be in the state as well earlier in the week for a similar event. On Tuesday night, Trump will participate in an ABC News “20/20” town hall in Philadelphia, anchored by ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos.

Biden’s running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), will also be in the state on Thursday to campaign in Philadelphia.

Trump, Biden, and Vice President Mike Pence all made visits in Pennsylvania last week as well. 

On Labor Day, Biden attended a virtual town hall from Harrisburg with AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. Last Tuesday, Pence headlined a “Workers for Trump” event in Beaver County and talked pro-life related issues in a visit to Westmoreland County. Last Friday, both Trump and Biden visited the Flight 93 National Memorial on September 11. 

Recent polling indicates that Biden has the slight edge over Trump in the state. The Real Clear Politics Average shows Biden besting Trump by 4.3 points in Pennsylvania.

  1. Trump handling of Covid was so bad that he should be tried for negligent homicide of 200,000 people.

  2. I still Biden will get a push in Scranton helping Cartwright and other Dems like DePaquale and Finello. Biden will do well in the Town Hall.
