HARRISBURG—The race for the White House is making a stop in Central Pennsylvania. The Second Lady, Dr. Jill Biden, is stopping in Harrisburg and Lancaster over the next two days trying to drum up support for the Democrats.
Dr. Biden is planning to stop in Harrisburg today at the Obama for America Headquarters along South Third Street. She is expected to thank volunteers while trying to garner last minute votes for the President and her husband, Vice-President Joe Biden. It's one of four stops today for the Second Lady as both campaigns start making that last minute push towards Election Day.
Mitt Romney is shrinking.
"Now Governor Romney wants another $5 trillion in cuts that he can't pay for? Not if I got anything to say about it," said President Barack Obama.
The President stepped up his campaign rhetoric at a stop in Los Angeles, CA last night. President Obama claims Mitt Romney's tax plan would sink the country. The President also jumped on Romney's plan to cut federal funding to PBS.
"Elmo's made a run for the border. Governor Romney plans to let Wall Street run wild again, but he's bringing the hammer down on sesame street," President Obama said.
"Now I'm optimistic. I want you to know that great days are ahead," said Mitt Romney, (R) Candidate for President.
Meanwhile, the Romney campaign spent two days in the ever-important swing state of Florida. Romney told supporters in Port St. Lucie, the country can't afford another four years of President Obama's failed economic and healthcare plans.
"They are going to raise taxes by a trillion dollars. Actually with Obamacare, it really becomes $2 trillion. That of course will make it harder for small businesses to hire people and to employ people," Romney said.
Both sides campaigning while a new poll shows the President's lead is shrinking. That poll shows President Obama leading Mitt Romney 47 to 45. This latest poll shows a slight bump for Romney after last week's debate. The pool of undecided voters is also shrinking, with 84 percent of respondents claiming they have made their choice for president.
Here's a look at Dr. Biden's visit for Central Pennsylvania. She starts today with a stop in Harrisburg, then moves on to Scranton and Hazleton before wrapping up her day in Allentown. Tomorrow, the Second Lady will stop in Reading before hitting Lancaster. She will finish her two day PA tour with a stop in Philadelphia.
For her event in Harrisburg today, Dr. Biden will speak at the Obama for America headquarters off of South Third Street at 11 am. Her visit comes just days before her husband is set to take on Paul Ryan in the Vice-Presidential debate scheduled for Thursday.
