Barack Obama turned his political attention Friday to Pennsylvania a state Donald Trump won in 2016.
The former president campaigned in Philadelphia with two leading Democrats running for re-election, Gov. Tom Wolf and U.S. Sen. Bob Casey.
At a campaign rally at the Dell Music Center in Philadelphia, Obama implored Pennsylvanians to vote in November because the election was more consequential than any he could remember.
This time, it really is different. This time, the stakes really are higher, Obama said. The consequences of any of us sitting on the sidelines are far more dangerous.
During the speech Obama made no mention of his successor in the White House by name, but urged voters of all parties not just Democrats to vote to restore honesty, decency and lawfulness to government.

so Obama will stay away ,LOL
This should tilt PA races back into the GOP’s favor
Assume he’s not venturing into Coal Country.
Why is Obama campaigning with these guys ?
They are supposed to be far ahead.
Maybe they are far enough ahead to still win even with Obama’s “help”.
The only party responsible for being lawless and destroying decent in Us government is the Democrats and you yourself Obama.
Hey, PA, are you better off now or when Obama was running things?
Wagner is probably doing alright, but I’m worried about Barletta. He’s practically invisible and that bothers me.
He needs to wake up the rust belt areas and get them to stop voting for Casey because he’s not his father at all.
Nope; in “sanctuary city” Philadelphia. Given what that town is descending into, he’ll eventually avoid going there like he avoids Chicago.
Good thing Barry is campaigning.
He reminds Americans of why they didnt like him in the first place.
The Democrats need him like they need the plague.
“...the stakes really are higher,...”
He is exactly right, and I hope every conservative Republican heard Obama.
From the article:
“Caseys Republican opponent, Rep. Lou Barletta, told The Associated Press that Obamas visit will stir up GOP voters in an election year when their party faces an uphill battle to retain its Capitol Hill majorities. Obama will energize those blue-collar Democrats who worried about their jobs under Obama and went out to vote for Donald Trump, Barletta said.
On President Obamas watch, we had our slowest economic recovery since World War II and Democrats lost more than 1,000 seats, said Michael Ahrens, a spokesman for the Republican National Committee. If he wants to help energize Republicans this election too, were happy to have him.”
That’s like sending Typhoid Mary to promote public health.
I wonder if he was really talking about the price of Wagyu beef steaks.
No ads at all. He’s toast. It angers me greatly, because he could have won.
but Im worried about Barletta......Baeletta is now a lost cause. I sent contributions and added an extra buck for a bumper sticker, and never got anything but more requests for more money. Volunteered to help his campaign..nothing. F HIM. more Cssey BS. He is running a Hillary campaign.
And considering how Casey is literally invisible and an empty suit, he didn’t have to put that much of an effort to out hustle him.
I’m completely flabbergasted at how utterly pathetic his campaign has been.
He and his wife couldn’t save Hillary there by barnstorming the night before the election but now the people will listen?
O/T: Cruz is handing Beto his @ss.
