Biden, Obama set for clash with Trump in Pennsylvania
President Biden and former President Obama are going head-to-head with former President Trump in Pennsylvania this weekend, underscoring the significance of the battleground state ahead of Tuesday’s midterm election.
Biden and Obama will hold a rally for Lt. Gov. John Fetterman (D) and state Attorney General Josh Shapiro (D) in Philadelphia on Saturday, while Trump will host a rally for GOP Senate candidate Mehmet Oz and state Sen. Doug Mastriano (R), the party’s gubernatorial candidate, on the other side of the state in Latrobe.
The campaign swings come amid signs the Senate race is tightening considerably. Polling from Emerson College and The Hill released on Thursday showed Oz leading Fetterman in a post-debate poll, painting a picture of growing momentum for Republicans.
