Donna Brazile: Biden would beat Trump in Pennsylvania despite president’s 2016 win
Joe Biden can take back a key battleground state that President Donald Trump won in 2016, according to ex-DNC Interim Chairwoman Donna Brazile.
The former vice president can make up the less than one percentage point Trump won by in Pennsylvania over Hillary Clinton, Brazile claimed.
“Look, I think it’s going to be a close election across the country. But, Donald Trump won the state of Pennsylvania by less than 50,000 votes,” she said.
Brazile was speaking during an interview Tuesday on “America’s Newsroom” on Fox News.
“Joe Biden will be able to make that up. But, not just Joe Biden—any one of the Democrats I think can be very competitive in the Keystone State.”
Trump spoke in Montoursville the previous night and blamed Biden for leaving Pennsylvania as a child, reports Fox News.
“Don’t forget: Biden deserted you. He’s not from Pennsylvania. I guess he was born here, but he left you, folks. He left you for another state. Remember that, please,” Trump told the crowd.
Brazile referenced the comment when she said, “He’s well known in Pennsylvania and he’s not the forgotten son. He is the forgotten hero.”
Biden was born in Scranton. He served as Senator from Delaware for more than 30 years.
A Quinnipiac University poll shows Biden beating Trump in Pennsylvania 53 to 42.
Politico reports Biden is also ahead in Wisconsin and Michigan.
