3 Presidents Rally Pennsylvania


One current and two former US presidents campaigned in Pennsylvania on Saturday, reflecting the importance both parties place on the election there Tuesday. President Biden and former President Barack Obama appeared together and separately at rallies for the Democratic slate, including Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, the Senate nominee, and Attorney General Josh Shapiro, who’s running for governor, the Washington Post reports. Former President Donald Trump was scheduled to attend an evening rally for GOP Senate nominee Mehmet Oz and Doug Mastriano, the Republican candidate for governor. And former President Bill Clinton was on the trail for a Democrat in New York. The party’s positions were argued Saturday by:

  • Biden: “Your right to choose is on the ballot. Your right to vote is on the ballot. Social Security and Medicare are on the ballot,” he told supporters in Philadelphia. It was his first such appearance with Obama since Biden was elected president, per the AP.
  • Obama: “I understand democracy might not seem like a top priority right now when gas prices are high and grocery bills are high,” he said at a Fetterman rally in Pittsburgh. “But let me tell you something, Pennsylvania, we’ve seen throughout history, we’ve seen around the world, what happens when you give up on democracy.”
  • Clinton: “Why is this a close race? Because of inflation,” he said at an event in Brooklyn for New York Gov. Kathy Hochul, per Politico. He addressed crime, as well, telling the crowd that “the Democrats, led by our governor, are actually doing something to lower costs and to improve public safety.”

Trump planned to speak at an event in Latrobe, near Pittsburgh, with Oz and Mastriano, whose joint appearances have been few this campaign. (Read more midterm elections stories.)
