CHESTER, Pa. (AP) – The World Series got suspended. The politics never stop.

Democrat Barack Obama carried on Tuesday with an outdoor rally at Widener University, outside Philadelphia, despite miserable weather. A cold, steady rain made it feel like the temperature was right around freezing.

It was the same kind of weather that halted the fifth game of the World Series in Philadelphia on Monday night, the first such suspension in the history of the baseball championship.

Several thousand people came out to hear Obama, his party’s presidential nominee.

Obama told the shivering crowd, “I just want all of you to know that if we see this kind of dedication on Election Day, there is no way that we’re not going to bring change to America.”
