PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Bacon, eggs, toast and politics dominated the menu at Ritter’s Diner on Baum Boulevard. Boston Mayor Marty Walsh joined Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto for breakfast before hitting the campaign trail to drum up support for Hillary Clinton.
“I don’t really see a choice. You have a person that’s running whose has plans, Secretary Clinton has laid out plans and you have a guy who blames people for things,” he said.
“We need a domestic policy agenda that actually helps cities, that doesn’t call cities “hell holes” but literally works with cities,” Mayor Peduto said.
Walsh, a Hillary Clinton surrogate, arrived in Pittsburgh hours after the FBI director notified Congress that he was renewing the investigation into Clinton’s email servers as a result of newly discovered emails.
“The director of the FBI said he wasn’t sure if any type of important information on the emails it’s my understanding that the emails were not on the cookie server. I just though republican clearly leaked it,” Walsh said.
With just ten days left before the election, Mayor Walsh said he is here because Pennsylvania is an important battleground state.
“Coming from Boston to here shows how important this state is on a national level but more important how great this city is,” he said.
Right now the race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is very close. Ritter’s had it’s share of voters on both sides of the fence.
“I believe he is strong on immigration, he is going to make the changes, we believe to get the old boys out of politics,” said Trump supporter George Bellios.
“Think I would be very embarrassed if Trump wins, he is really a disgrace it’s not only my opinion but it’s everybody’s opinion in Europe,” said Clinton supporter Maria Tarone.
