This evening, Hillary Clinton will make her final appeal to the American people before tomorrow’s pivotal election, and she’ll have two rock star allies by her side. Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi will join her in Philadelphia for the last stop of her late-breaking concert series across swing states. President Obama, Michelle Obama, former President Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton and others will attend.
Bon Jovi has stumped for Clinton throughout her campaign, while the Boss has spoken out about the unique threat he believes Republican candidate Donald Trump poses to the United States.
“The republic is under siege by a moron, basically. The whole thing is tragic,” Springsteen told Rolling Stone in September. “Without overstating it, it’s a tragedy for our democracy. When [Trump starts] talking about elections being rigged, you’re pushing people beyond democratic governance.”
New Jersey might be home to Bon Jovi and Springsteen, but they’re taking their working-class message to Philly to help keep Pennsylvania in Clinton’s column.
