Biden Campaign Expands Presence with 10 New Offices Across Pennsylvania

Following his recent multi-city tour of the state, President Joe Biden’s reelection campaign, in partnership with the Pennsylvania Democratic Party, inaugurated ten new coordinated offices statewide on Tuesday.

With this growth, the campaign now has 24 strategically placed coordinated campaign offices spread throughout Pennsylvania. The goals of these offices include voter mobilization, volunteer recruitment, and grassroots organizing.

Started in Philadelphia, the inaugural ceremony for these new offices featured notable Democrats from the city, including state senator Sharif Street and representatives Donna Bullock and Malcolm Kenyatta. Six of the new offices will be located in Philadelphia, while two more will be in the counties of Centre and Luzerne.

The manager of Biden’s campaign in Pennsylvania, Nikki Lu, stressed the significance of capitalizing on the momentum created by the candidate’s recent appearances around the state.

Lu emphasized the campaign’s dedication to making sure all Pennsylvanians are contacted and inspired to interact with the campaign’s message, not only those living in large cities like Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

Pennsylvania is a battleground state that is very important because of its 19 electoral votes, which are crucial in presidential elections.

14 coordinated campaign offices were opened by the Pennsylvania Democratic Party last month, with a focus on red-leaning areas like York and Lancaster as well as blue-leaning ones like Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.

On the other hand, it seems that the presumed Republican nominee, former President Donald Trump, does not have a strong campaign infrastructure in the state. Even though Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in Pennsylvania by a slim margin in 2016, Biden won the state by a margin of 80,000 votes in 2020.

Pennsylvania is one of the six toss-up states in the current election cycle, with the most electoral college votes up for grabs, according to the Cook Political Report.

Both Trump and Biden have already won their parties’ presidential nominations through previous primary victories, and this is the day that Pennsylvania Republicans and Democrats compete in the primary election.
