Dr. Jill Biden will appear at five events in Pennsylvania Friday and Saturday, a sign the Obama campaign is officially worried about losing a state once thought to be securely in the president’s column.
The latest RealClearPolitics average of polls in Virginia gives President Obama a 4.6 point edge. But that’s half what it was only a month ago, a sign Gov. Mitt Romney may have the momentum.
Dr. Biden had been scheduled to go to Pennsylvania earlier this week, and Vice President Biden was to be there Thursday, but the appearances were cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy. That the Obama campaign has put Dr. Biden’s trip right back on the schedule this late in the game suggests concern in the Obama camp about the state is significant.
Dr. Biden will be in Media, Pennsylvania Friday and then travel to West Chester, Norristown, Germantown and Northeast Philadelphia for events.
