President Biden tripped over Democratic Senate nominee Lt. gov. John Fetterman, however, made only brief mention of the lieutenant governor, instead passionately pleading for choosing between “two very different visions of America.”
OBAMA STRENGTHENS PENNSYLVANIA DEMS IN NEW AD STRESSING ABORTION
“Democracy is on the ballot this year,” Biden told the audience. “Along with your right to choose and your right to privacy. And the amazing thing is that they say it out loud.”
Fetterman and Dr. Mehmet Oz are in a close race for the US Senate, although a recent debate full of thoughtful thoughts and incomprehensible answers threatens to jeopardize Fetterman’s razor-thin lead.
Biden was joined in Philadelphia by Vice President Kamala Harris – the couple underscored the tremendous importance that the Pennsylvania election has nationwide.
“Only two spots left,” Harris said. “One of them, right here.”
In 34 minutes, Biden used a section of the speech to mention Fetterman and another section at the end to criticize Oz.
“Introduce [U.S. Sen. Bob] Casey and Fetterman as partners in the US Senate,” Biden said. “John has a wealth of experience serving the state as mayor and then as lieutenant governor.”
“And he’s leaving no one behind,” Biden continued. “John leaves no one behind – whether it’s building an economy that works for everyone, keeping communities safe, protecting your rights and freedoms. Above all, John has tremendous integrity. You know who he is, you know where he stands, and you know John is Pennsylvania.”
Biden also showed intense emotion over the recent attack on the House Speaker’s home.
“Enough is enough is enough,” Biden yelled at the Philadelphia fundraiser. “Every person of good conscience must speak out clearly and unequivocally against the violence in our politics, regardless of what your politics are.”
