Jill Biden will be in Pittsburgh on Saturday to attend the Italian Sons and Daughters of America Dinner

First lady Jill Biden will arrive in Pittsburgh on Saturday to attend a dinner of Italian Sons and Daughters of America, the White House announced Wednesday.

Biden is the first Italian-American first lady to host Italian-American Heritage Month reception at the White House in October and often attends events celebrating Italian heritage and culture. Last month, she was in Wisconsin, where she attended the annual Italian Feast in Milwaukee.

Her visit to Pittsburgh comes the same day that former President and presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump will hold a campaign rally in Butler, about an hour north of Pittsburgh. It is Trump’s first campaign rally in western Pennsylvania since July 2023, when he spoke in Erie.

Jill Biden joined President Joe Biden on a campaign visit to Pennsylvania last weekend, when the president spoke at a church service in Philadelphia and at a union hall in Harrisburg. The president sought to assure voters and fellow Democrats that he was ready for the job after a penniless performance in the June 27 presidential debate. Some Democratic Party members have questioned whether the president should step down as the presumptive nominee, but most in the party still publicly support him. Biden has said he has no plans to drop out of the race.

Jill Biden was last in Pittsburgh in June, speaking on the first day of Pride Month celebrations and close to the anniversary of Dobbs’ decision to speak out about reproductive rights.

President Biden last visited western Pennsylvania in April, when he made a three-day campaign stop in the state, with stops in Scranton, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia ahead of the state’s primary.
