"I am home. -Joe Biden"

A Pennsylvania Neighborhood

'Bloc' Party:

From This House to the White House


“I really do view this campaign as a campaign between Scranton and Park Avenue.”  

-Joe Biden, CNN Town Hall,  Scranton, PA, 9/17/2020 



We are just some folks connected to Scranton.  We are the families from up and down the streets and from the childhood home of Joe Biden. We are friends. We are the owners of the hoagie shops and we support the joints where you buy pizza by the "tray". We are the characters behind so many of those scrappy stories Joe shares. Joe and Kamala have earned our support and we are so proud to support them.

Joe's neighbors, local leaders, and small business owners are rallying together with folks from across Pennsylvania, along with friends far and wide to organize A Pennsylvania Neighborhood 'Bloc' Party: From This House to the White House. We hope you join us, too! About us.
