Rivals vying for one of Pennsylvania's U.S. Senate seats will both campaign in Philadelphia Tuesday.
Democratic challenger Katie McGinty will join U.S. Rep. Bob Brady and Sen. Bob Casey at the Sheet Metal Workers Local 19 headquarters on Columbus Boulevard at 10 a.m.
McGinty's campaign said the event kicks off their fall push in the race.
Republican incumbent Pat Toomey is set to speak to patrons of the Keller's Family Market in Northeast Philly at 12:30 p.m.
There, Toomey will call on McGinty to "drop her efforts to increase taxes on middle-class families," according to Toomey's campaign.
Recent polls have shown a fluctuating race. A September CBS News/YouGov survey showed the two candidates virtually tied.
An August survey from Franklin & Marshall, McGinty has taken a five-point edge over Toomey among likely voters, while another recent poll gave Toomey a seven-point lead over McGinty. However, the methods of that survey were called into question since it only used landline respondents.
