The long-awaited return of John Fetterman to the public campaign trail is now on the books for Friday, August 12, in Erie.
The campaign made the announcement in an email to supporters and media.
“Before the 2020 election, I said that if I could know one single fact about the results, I could tell you who was going to win Pennsylvania. Whoever wins Erie County will win Pennsylvania,” said Fetterman. “Erie County is Pennsylvania’s most important bellwether county. I’ve visited Erie dozens and dozens of times in the past, and I am honored and proud to be returning to the campaign trail here.”
Erie County has selected the winner of each of the last five presidential contests dating to 2008 and the election on Barack Obama. The county has also tabbed the winner of each gubernatorial and U.S. senatorial race in the Commonwealth since 2012.
It will be the lieutenant governor’s first public rally since mid-May.
Fetterman also announced that his U.S. Senate campaign has surpassed 1 million individual contributions since its launch last year.
