SLOTUS Rallies in Harrisburg

Jill Biden, right, speaks as daughter Ashley Biden looks on.

Harrisburg — Dr. Jill Biden rallied about 180 Obama supporters as she embarked on a 7 city tour of eastern Pa. to get out the vote.

She emphasized voter registration Monday morning, one day before the registration deadline in Pa.

“Even if my husband Joe’s name weren’t on the ballot, I would be out working in this election,” she declared.

A community college professor, she spoke about the support of President Obama and her husband, Vice President Joe Biden, for education funding. She also talked about reproductive rights.

“For all the women here, the President and the Vice President know how important it is for women to be able to make our own decisions about our own health care,” she said. “We do not wanna go back and re-fight those battles we fought decades ago.”

Biden also implored the assembled volunteers to spread the word that Pa.’s voter ID requirement was enjoined by a judge last week.

“And we’ve gotta get the news out to people that they do not need a photo ID,” Biden said to loud applause. “So make sure when you’re making those calls and out there talking to people that people understand that.”

Several local politicos were on hand at the event as reporters quietly bemoaned Pa.’s diminished status as a battleground state. Dauphin County Commissioner George Hartwick introduced State Rep. and Pa. Auditor General candidate Eugene DePasquale. Rob Teplitz, the Dem running for Pa. Senate in a Harrisburg-area district, was also on hand. As was Harrisburg City Councilman and prospective mayoral candidate Brad Koplinski.

  1. The loud applause following Biden’s remark that voter ID failed in PA for this election most likely came from the 180 the DNC recruited to work for ACORN.
