Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden speaks during a rally at Teamsters Local 249 hall in Lawrenceville on Monday, April 29, 2019. It was Biden’s first campaign stop after announcing his candidacy last week.

Former Vice President Joe Biden will travel to Pittsburgh on Election Day, Nov. 5, according to a statement from his campaign.

No additional details about the visit were immediately available.

Biden last brought his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination to Pittsburgh in April.

He visited the Teamsters Local 249 banquet hall on Butler Street in Lawrenceville with his wife, Jill, speaking before an audience of about 600 people.

“I also came here because, quite frankly folks, if I’m going to be able to beat Donald Trump in 2020, it’s going to happen here,” Biden said at the event in April. “With your help, I think we’re going to be able to do that.”

An August survey from Franklin & Marshall College showed that among Pennsylvania voters, Biden is the favorite of the 19 candidates vying for the Democratic nomination.

An average of national polls compiled by Real Clear Politics also shows Biden leading the pack, polling at 28.4%.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
