PHILADELPHIA — The 2016 Democratic National Convention was barely underway when the Pennsylvania Delegation heard a major announcement.
Hillary Clinton, the party’s nominee for president, will be in Scranton Aug. 15 with Vice President and Scranton native Joe Biden.
The two were supposed to be in the Electric City earlier in July, but the event was canceled. John Podesta, chairman of Clinton’s campaign, made the announcement at the delegation’s breakfast Monday morning. Podesta previously served as Chief of Staff for President Bill Clinton.
It was an affirmation of what has been said throughout the presidential campaign — Pennsylvania is a key to winning the White House.
