On Wednesday, President Biden will campaign in Philadelphia

The White House announced Friday that President Joe Biden will host a campaign event in Philadelphia. Few details were immediately available.

Pennsylvania was expected to see regular visits from presidential candidates before the 2024 campaign began in earnest with the state’s 19 electoral votes at stake, but the Biden campaign has focused especially on the Keystone State, opening a dozen offices across the commonwealth in safer Democratic areas , such as Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, but also areas that tend to vote Republican, such as York and Lancaster.

Biden campaigned regularly in Pennsylvania in 2024, including a weeklong campaign in Scranton, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia in the week before the state’s April primary. Four of Biden’s 2024 visits to Pennsylvania were in the Southeast, a densely populated region of the Commonwealth where Democrats have a significant voter registration advantage over Republicans.

AND Philadelphia Inquirer/New York Times/Siena College Poll released on May 13 shows Biden trailing Trump in five battleground states, including Pennsylvania, where 47% of respondents chose Trump and 44% said they would vote for Biden.

In 2020, Biden defeated Trump in Pennsylvania by just over 80,000 votes.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
