Clinton, Kaine will campaign Saturday in Squirrel Hill
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her running mate, Tim Kaine, are scheduled to appear late Saturday afternoon in Pittsburgh in the first of two campaign stops in Pennsylvania.
The Pittsburgh event starts at 4:45 p.m. at Taylor Allderdice High School, 2409 Shady Ave., in the city’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood. Doors open at 2:45 p.m.
Clinton and Kaine are scheduled to appear later in Philadelphia.
The Clinton campaign also was working in Westmoreland County on Friday.
The Arkansas Travelers, a group of about 40 friends and former co-workers of Hillary Clinton, spent about four hours staffing a phone bank at the Westmoreland County Democratic Headquarters before spending the afternoon knocking on doors in Latrobe and Mt. Pleasant. It was the second visit to the county by the group, which canvassed Greensburg and other locations during the spring primary.
“We’re asking people to support our friend,” said group spokeswoman Sheila Bronfman.
Pennsylvania is a key battleground state, with 20 electoral votes at stake. A candidate needs 270 electoral votes to win the White House.
