President Biden and former President Obama are set to hold a rally together in Philadelphia on Saturday. The two will be campaigning in support of Senate candidate John Fetterman (D) as well as gubernatorial candidate Josh Shapiro (D). The Democratic National Committee has also said that the two men are also looking to encourage Pennsylvania Democrats to cast their votes.
The first reports about Biden and Obama supporting Fetterman and Shapiro ahead of the election came from the Hill.
During this campaign cycle, Biden has repeatedly visited Philadelphia. His latest visit was on Friday evening when he made a joint appearance with Vice President Harris to fundraise for Fetterman and Shapiro. This was a rare occurrence as the President and Vice President don’t tend to make many appearances together.
Pennsylvania is a competitive race which could be incredibly important as it is one of the few sites that the Democrats might be able to flip in the Senate race. Fetterman appears to be leading over Republican Mehmet Oz in polls.
Obama has been campaigning across the country for the past week.
The former President made an appearance in Georgia where he campaigned for Sen. Raphael Warnock (D) and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. He also made stops in Wisconsin and Michigan last weekend.
