Barack Obama is back on the campaign trail, but this time it’s not his own.

The former president will stump for Democratic presidential nominee – and former vice president – Joe Biden in Philadelphia on Wednesday, according to The Hill.

Earlier this week, Democratic sources revealed that Obama would hit the road for Biden in the final days leading up to the election, exhilarating Democrats who have long awaited his return.

Obama traveled to Philadelphia earlier in the season to deliver his speech at the Democratic National Convention, where he spoke live from the Museum of the American Revolution. Obama was Biden’s only top surrogate to deliver a speech from a remote location, the Hill reports.

While Obama has held virtual fundraisers for his former vice president – and has appeared in several videos – he is taking it a step further by traveling to key swing states in the final 18-day stretch.

Pennsylvania is one of the most critical, as both candidates scramble to scrape together any and all last-minute undecided voters.

Obama also stumped for Hillary Clinton during her run for president in 2016, joining her on stage during a rally at Philadelphia’s Independence Mall that drew in thousands of supporters on the eve of the election.

Smart play, Joe.

While Biden hides away, Obama comes out to play.
