With the midterm elections just weeks away, Democrats running in marquee Senate races have turned to musician Dave Matthews to galvanise his fans to the polls.
Matthews plans to parachute into Pennsylvania to headline a get-out-the-vote rally for Lt. Gov. John Fetterman.
“I can promise you don’t want to miss this,” Mr. Fetterman told his supporters.
Matthews also sought to boost the Senate campaigns of Democratic hopefuls Cheri Beasley and Tim Ryan in North Carolina and Ohio this week.
The Democrats‘ last hopes of picking up Republican-held seats are in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and North Carolina races.
“Please try and remember when election day comes or before whenever you can please try and remember to try and put decent people into our government — decent people like Tim Ryan,” Matthews said at the end of his set in Columbus.

“His hearing of sound such as music is not affected,” his physician said.
The Fetterman rally Wednesday is set to take place at an entertainment complex in Pittsburgh.
“This is the most important election in the country, and I am honored to have Dave Matthews joining us in Pittsburgh for a rally to kick off our get-out-the-vote efforts,” Mr. Fetterman said in a statement.
“We’re excited to have Dave perform for all of our fans in Pittsburgh to thank everyone for their hard work to get to this point, and emphasize the stakes of this race for people across Pennsylvania.”
