Pence To Campaign in Reading
Vice President Mike Pence will be returning to the Keystone State later this week to campaign.
On Saturday afternoon, Pence will be hosting a “Make America Great Again” event at the Reading Regional Airport. Those interested in attending can find tickets here.
This will be Pence’s first visit to Pennsylvania in October. His most recent stop in the state was when he headlined a presidential debate watch party in Lancaster County the night of the first presidential debate.
President Donald Trump also made his first visit to the state this month on Tuesday night when he hosted a rally in Johnstown. Prior to that visit, Trump’s most recent appearances in the state were in the last full-week of September when he held rallies in Harrisburg and 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.
The Democratic presidential ticket has been campaigning in the state in recent weeks as well.
Former Vice President Joe Biden will be in Philadelphia for an ABC News town hall moderated by George Stephanopoulos on Thursday night. Biden’s visit on Thursday will be his third to the state in under 10 days.
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.
