Obama, Two Other Presidents Campaign In Pennsylvania In Final Days Until Midterm Elections
One sitting and two former presidents descended on Pennsylvania, Saturday (Nov. 5) to campaign for one of the nation’s closest U.S. Senate races.
CNN reports that former President Barack Obama will be joined by President Joe Biden during a rare joint appearance in Philadelphia in hopes to boost Democratic candidate Lt. Gov. John Fetterman. President Obama will also join Fetterman in Pittsburgh in the morning.
Former President Donald Trump will rally outside of Pittsburgh in the city of Latrobe for his hand-selected candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz.
The consequences of next week’s election will extend all the way into 2024 as Trump prepares to announce a third presidential bid in the coming weeks.
Biden called out “Trump and all his Trumpies” at a rally in California this week and identified Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as “Trump incarnate” during a fundraiser outside Fort Lauderdale on Tuesday (Nov. 1). During his rallies, Trump played a video reel of Biden slip-ups to cast his successor as a gaffe-prone senior citizen.
The neck-and-neck Senate race could decide control of the chamber, with significant influence over legislation and any appointments Biden may make, including any possible openings on the Supreme Court arise.
