If it seems like there is a political candidate in your backyard or mucking up your commute every few days, you’re not wrong. Such is life in a swing state with fewer than 50 days until the election.
Here at The Incline, we wanted to make navigating all of those events easier for you so you know which to attend (or avoid). On The Incline’s Decision 2016 calendar, you can see when and where politicians are speaking in and near Pittsburgh.

Our calendar will remind you of other important moments, events and deadlines, too, such as presidential debates, voter registration deadline and, of course, Election Day. You can also visit our sister site, Billy Penn, to see where presidential candidates and their supporters are stumping in Pennsylvania.
We’ve also backdated some Pittsburgh visits on our calendar for you. There was Mark Cuban, the Mt. Lebanon native and billionaire, who called Trump a jagoff (which is now in the dictionary, have you heard?) while stumping for Clinton in late July. When Donald Trump Jr. visited last week, he called his dad a “blue-collar billionaire.” Trump Jr. also gave a Primanti’s sandwich a try, too.
With 47 days to go until Election Day, Pennsylvania and Florida are the two most crucial states (although not that crucial) for Clinton and Trump, FiveThirtyEight predicts. Its polls-only forecast says Clinton leads Trump 56.3 percent to 43.7 percent. (Clinton also has the advantage in the two other election forecast models that FiveThirtyEight uses.)
We’ll keep updating the calendar as we hear about local stops. Let us know if we’ve missed one: [email protected]
