Obama to stump for Democrats in Philadel­phia rally

Daily Times (Primos, PA) - - NEWS -

HAR­RIS­BURG » For­mer Pres­i­dent Barack Obama’s stops on the mid-term cam­paign trail will run through Philadel­phia.

The state Democratic Party said Obama will head­line a Sept. 21 rally in Philadel­phia to boost the re-elec­tion cam­paigns of Democratic U.S. Sen. Bob Casey and Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf, but also other down­bal­lot races that Democrats are con­test­ing.

In the Philadel­phia area alone, Democrats are hop­ing to flip four U.S. House seats and more than a dozen state leg­isla­tive seats that will be on the Nov. 6 gen­eral elec­tion bal­lots.

Casey and Wolf are lead­ing in­de­pen­dent polls com­fort­ably over two Repub­li­can chal­lengers aligned with Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump.

Af­ter the rally, Obama is head­lin­ing a fundraiser for Casey and Se­nate Democrats in Philadel­phia. Don­ald Trump Jr. is head­lin­ing a state Repub­li­can Party din­ner that evening.
