Trump To Rally in Erie
President Donald Trump will be making an appearance to one of the key swing counties in Pennsylvania on Tuesday.
Trump will be hosting a “Make America Great Again!” rally at the Erie International Airport on Tuesday evening. Those interested in attending can find tickets here.
Trump’s upcoming visit will be exactly 1 week after his first visit to the state this month when he hosted a rally in Johnstown last Tuesday night. 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.
Vice President Mike Pence will be campaigning in the state one day prior to Trump. Pence has a rally planned for Cumberland County on Monday afternoon.
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.
The Democratic presidential ticket has been campaigning in the state in recent weeks as well, including Erie County.
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 last 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.
