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.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com 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.
