As if we needed another indication that Pennsylvania is a critical state in the presidential election, the Democratic party announced it’s pulling out all the stops on Monday, the night before the election.

Hillary Clinton will hold an outdoor rally here in Philadelphia Monday evening at 7:30 p.m. on Independence Mall, according to her campaign. But it gets bigger. She’ll be joined by Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, Barack Obama and Michelle Obama. On top of that squad, Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi will also make special appearances. Here’s what the campaign wrote in a press release:

Clinton will urge Pennsylvanians to make history on Tuesday by electing her president so she can continue pushing for the American ideals of progress, inclusion, equality and strength that our founders enshrined in our Constitution in Philadelphia in 1787.

Along with Obama, Clinton will “lay out how the division and dangerous views espoused by Donald Trump in his campaign make him unqualified, unfit and unworthy to lead this great nation.”

Members of the public who want to attend can RSVP here. Doors open at 4 p.m.
