Former President and Obama pinch-hitter Bill Clinton is coming to Pa. on Monday. The Obama campaign confirmed the visit soon after Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney and VP candidate Paul Ryan announced their weekend trips to the state.
Clinton has served as Obama’s most effective spokesman since the Democratic convention.
With the Romney/Ryan visits and a last-minute $12 million ad blitz, Republicans are making a play for Pa. Democrats have insisted that the Keystone State isn’t up for grabs, but they’re apparently feeling less like taking the chance.
Update: Here are the details for all four Clinton events:
