HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are each traveling separately to the battleground state of Pennsylvania this week for campaign events.
They'll follow Democrat Joe Biden’s speech in Pittsburgh on Monday where he blamed Trump for instigating violence in America’s streets.
Trump is to speak Thursday evening at Arnold Palmer Regional Airport in Latrobe, about 30 miles (45 kilometers) east of Pittsburgh. Pence was to appear Tuesday in northeastern Pennsylvania, at a construction company for a “workers for Trump” event. Pennsylvania, with its 20 electoral votes and politically divided electorate, is of the utmost importance to both campaigns in the Nov. 3 presidential election.
