Marty Walsh Will Stump for Hillary Clinton at a Pittsburgh Diner
Mayor Marty Walsh is hitting the campaign trail for Hillary Clinton this weekend, with hopes of rounding up a swing state into the Democrats’ column.
Walsh will meet with Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto and other local leaders Saturday morning at Ritter’s Diner in Pittsburgh, where the favorites, at least according to Yelp, are heaping helpings of pillowy homefries and something called a “Greek hobo omelet.” (Also, it’s cash-only.)
Walsh, who endorsed Clinton during the Democratic primary and spoke at the party’s national convention in Philadelphia this summer, will meet with voters and stump for the former Secretary of State. Following breakfast, Walsh will lead a labor walk with Terry O’Sullivan, president of Laborers’ International Union of North America, and hundreds of LiUNA members.
Clinton leads Republican nominee Donald Trump 46-39 in Pennsylvania, according to a New York Times Upshot/Siena College poll released Tuesday.
Peduto and Walsh have more in common than their support for Clinton. Both mayors have shown keen interest in bringing self-driving cars to their respective cities. Peduto managed to court Uber to the Steel City to try out its driverless prototypes, while Walsh signed an executive order last week setting up the regulatory framework for autonomous vehicles in Boston.
“Autonomous vehicles have the incredible promise to deliver safer streets and a more reliable, equitable and sustainable transportation system, but that will only occur with the right technology and right policies in place,” Walsh said in a release.
