A Democratic congressional candidate says a Philadelphia-area school district is playing politics by canceling a rally headlined by Vice President Joe Biden.
Biden is set to campaign Wednesday for Democrat Bryan Lentz in the home stretch of a close race for an open congressional seat.
Lentz, a state representative, is facing Republican Pat Meehan, a former U.S. attorney.
Lentz's campaign manager says he signed a deal Friday to hold the rally at Radnor High School, only to have the plan unravel. Campaign manager Kevin McTigue believes Republican school officials are to blame.
A call to the district's superintendent was not immediately returned Tuesday.
The event will instead be held at a township-owned gym.
