Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf (above) will visit McKeesport on Saturday to take part in a political rally at the Palisades Ballroom, Fifth and Water streets, Downtown.

The "Mass Rally in the Valley" is being sponsored by a group calling itself the Mon-Valley People's Action Committee and begins at 2:30 p.m. A complete list of guests has not been announced.

Wolf, a Democrat, is running for re-election on Nov. 6. Seeking election as lieutenant governor on the same ticket is John Fetterman, mayor of Braddock.

Wolf and Fetterman are being challenged by Republicans Scott Wagner, the gubernatorial candidate and a former state senator from York County; and Jeff Bartos, the candidate for lieutenant governor and a real-estate developer from Montgomery County.
