|July 21, 2020: The Trump campaign spent $50 million in June, which was roughly twice its expenditures in May. Republican John Kasich is expected to speak at the Democratic National Convention.
“Joe Biden’s campaign is walking an environmental tightrope in Pennsylvania, aiming to balance his new, aggressive climate plan with reassurances that he won’t seek to gut the fracking industry that has turned the state’s natural gas riches into an economic engine.
Pennsylvania is among the handful of states that Biden needs to win to defeat President Donald Trump, and it has tilted toward the presumptive Democratic nominee as criticism of Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic has mounted. At the same time, Biden has adopted more of the environmental goals pushed by Sen. Bernie Sanders and others in the party’s progressive wing, raising the risks that he could alienate the blue collar workers who operate the wells and pipelines that move the gas from the Marcellus Shale in the Keystone State.”
