President Barack Obama is making a trip to the City of Brotherly Love Tuesday to campaign for Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton. This is the first trip to Philadelphia for the Commander in Chief since The Democratic National Convention earlier this summer.
Kicking off at 1:45 pm at Eakins Oval on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, President Obama will be promoting “Hillary for Pennsylvania” in an attempt to sway votes Clinton’s way. Pennsylvania’s reputation as a ’swing-state’ makes the keystone state a battleground in the general election.
Obama will be pushing voter registration as well, which ends October 11th.
This visit comes on the heels of an announcement by the Clinton camp that Secretary Clinton is suffering from pneumonia and is resting at home. She was not set to attend the event.
Republican Candidate Donald Trump will also be in the area, making a debut in Delaware County. According to Mr. Trump’s website, the event is closed to the public.
