Apparently there is at least one democratic candidate who wants to be associated with Joe Biden. On Thursday night, the president will be at an event in Philadelphia to help fundraise for John Fetterman. It can’t be a good sign for Fetterman that he is needing to take his chances on bringing in the unpopular president. The Pennsylvania Senate race has become one of the most competitive in the country and Mehmet Oz continues to pull closer.
Fetterman greeted Biden upon his arrival in the state and Biden could heard telling him, “You’re gonna win,” as the two shook hands.
An ABC News/Washington Post poll released last month found Biden’s approval rating underwater: 39% of Americans approved of his job performance while 53% disapproved.
According to ABC News:
White House Correspondent MaryAlice Parks questioned Biden about his appearances on the campaign trail as he departed the White House on Thursday morning.
“Mr. President, John Fetterman is gonna appear with you today in Pennsylvania … but there haven’t been that many candidates campaigning with you,” Parks said.
“That’s not true. There have been 15, count, kid, count.” Biden interrupted.
“OK, and are there gonna be even more?” Parks pressed further.
“Yeah,” Biden replied.
