President Barack Obama made a special appearance on Temple’s campus Sunday night. The president appeared at the Liacouras Center as the keynote speaker at a campaign rally for Pennsylvania Democratic
Gubernatorial candidate Tom Wolf.
In his first visit to Temple since the 2010 midterm elections, the 44th president called for people to get out and vote for his fellow Democrat Tom Wolf.
In response to cheers of admiration from the crowd President Obama responded, “I love you too, but I need you to vote.”
President Obama spoke to the thousands in attendance for the rally about Tom Wolf’s positive qualities as a potential governor.
“He’s a practical person who just wants to make it work for the people of Pennsylvania. So he knows, for example, that education is the key, not just to economic growth, but also to personal advancement in a modern economy.”
Wolf is running to unseat incumbent Republican Tom Corbett. Governor Corbett campaigned Sunday in the Philadelphia suburbs with New Jersey governor Chris Christie.
