For the second time in three days, Vice President Mike Pence will be hosting a rally in Pennsylvania.
On Monday afternoon, Pence will be hosting a “Make America Great Again!” rally at Skyport Aviation in Cumberland County. Those interested in attending can find tickets here.
On Saturday afternoon, Pence made his first appearance in the state in October by hosting a rally in Reading. Prior to his rally in Reading, the VP’s 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 is set to make a visit to the Keystone State this upcoming week as well to host a rally in Erie on Tuesday. Trump’s first visit to the state this month was this past 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.
Biden was in Philadelphia on Thursday night fielding questions from Pennsylvania voters during an ABC News town hall. Biden made three separate appearances in the state in a 9-day span.
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.
While Biden and Harris currently don’t have any campaign appearances scheduled for the state, former President Barack Obama will be campaigning on behalf of the Biden campaign on Wednesday in Philadelphia.
Recent polling indicates that Biden has an advantage over Trump in the state. The Real Clear Politics Average shows Biden besting Trump by 5.6 points in Pennsylvania.
Pence is trying to help Scott Perry, who has been MIA for the past few weeks.
Pence is positioning himself for the next cycle. He has navigated the political waters quite well and could have assorted political options if Trump gets defeated.
It’s like they are all running for President of PA. Ludicrous.
