Guess Who’s Coming to Delco?

Fresh off his State of the Union address, President Joe Biden will hold a campaign rally in Delaware County on Friday.

The president will visit Strath Haven Middle School in Wallingford. He is anticipated to arrive at Philadelphia International Airport around 2:45 p.m.

The rally is expected to take place in the early evening, according to two sources with knowledge of the planning that told The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Classes are still expected to go on as scheduled on Friday. The district emailed parents this week noting unspecified visitors could result in shifts in parking and road closures around the middle and high schools “following dismissal and into the evening,” and that some afternoon sports and activities could be impacted.

It is the third visit to the Philadelphia area for Biden this year and fourth to eastern Pennsylvania, including a stop in Allentown.

Democrats won big in Delaware County in 2019, turning the County Council blue for the first time since the Civil War. That trend continued the following year, as Biden was able to amass more than 100,000 votes than Hilary Clinton received in 2016, leading him to the state’s electoral votes.

It is not the first time that the school district has been the backdrop for a political event. Former President Barack Obama came to Strath Haven High School as a candidate during the 2008 Democratic primary season, while current U.S. Senator John Fetterman held a rally at Nether Providence Elementary School during his 2022 campaign.
