ERIE, Pa. — In spite of polls showing Clinton in the lead in Pennsylvania, leaders urged volunteers to make phone calls and continue door knocking. The Democratic National Committee says it is focusing the bus tour on communities most critical for a Democratic victory, including communities of color, working families and students.
In the 2012 presidential election, democrats secured nearly 58% of the Erie County vote; but with Trump signs popping up across town, Democratic officials say it’s fuel to work harder.
“We’re in the last three weeks, now. So, we’re optimistic and things are looking really, really good,” said Shu-Yen Wei, DNC regional press secretary. “We have a lot of support that we’ve seen across the U.S.”
After leaving Erie, the Forward Together bus would be headed to Johnstown, according to Wei.
