Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s campaign announced that Biden, former second lady Jill Biden, vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), and Harris’s husband, Doug Emhoff will hold campaign events across Pennsylvania on Nov. 2, the day before Election Day.

It comes as President Donald Trump held numerous rallies across Pennsylvania, drawing tens of thousands of supporters, on Saturday.

According to a news release from Biden’s campaign on Sunday, the four will talk about getting out the vote and how to bring unity in the country to deal with crises. They “will barnstorm Pennsylvania and fan out across all four corners” of the state, the release stated.

Joe and Jill Biden will visit western Pennsylvania, while Harris and Emhoff will visit the eastern portion of the Keystone State, said the campaign.

The former vice president will canvass in Beaver County along with union members and leaders, attend a drive-in event in Pittsburgh, and attend an event in Pittsburgh with his wife and singer Lady Gaga.

Jill Biden will also canvass in Erie, located near the borders with New York and Ohio, and she will attend a vote event in Lawrence County, join an event in Allegheny County, and attend a drive-in event—all on Monday.

The Biden campaign didn’t release the time for the events.

Over the weekend, Biden said in Philadelphia on Sunday: “President Trump is terrified of what will happen in Pennsylvania,” adding that voters will deliver him an election loss and “he doesn’t stand a chance.”

“The American people will not be silenced,” he added. “Over 90 million people have already voted. They’ve had enough.” He also panned Trump’s response to the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic.

The Biden campaign’s notice about campaigning comes after Trump held four rallies in Pennsylvania on Saturday, including one in Butler County that appeared to have drawn thousands of people.

Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, a Democrat, issued a warning to fellow Democrats about Trump’s rallies.

“Donald Trump is doing things that have never been done in Pennsylvania politics in terms of the raw barnstorming across small county Pennsylvania, so it’s hard to predict with certainty how that’s going to activate not only his base of voters from 2016, but also those that sat it out, too,” Fetterman told CNN on Sunday.

In a Twitter post, Fetterman wrote that Trump “is popular in [Pennsylvania,]” and “I don’t care what polls say.” He included a photo taken by a Reuters photographer showing the Butler County rally, writing, “That’s not a photoshop.”

Trump won Pennsylvania in 2016, defeating Democrat challenger Hillary Clinton by a slim margin. In 2020, both candidates have made the state a frequent campaign stop.
