A Secret Service agent perspires as he keeps watch on President Obama at Carnegie Mellon University
Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: President Barack Obama told an enthusiastic, if steamy crowd this afternoon that the election “isn’t just about two candidates or two parties – it’s about two fundamentally different visions for America.”
Speaking at Carnegie Mellon University, he laid out campaign themes he’s been hitting on his “Betting On America” bus tour.
He got big applause when he said, “Why would we want to go backward to the same theory that didn’t work before?” and “The Supreme Court has spoken, the law we passed is here to stay.”
A crowd of about 6,500 gathered on the College of Fine Arts lawn. At least 13 people were treated for heat exhaustion as temperatures stood in the high 90s.
