It was a quick trip from JBA to Philadelphia International Airport. We had Philly cheesesteaks, potato chips and bottled water. Deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley briefly came back to chat with reporters.

AF1 touched down in Philadelphia at 2:07 pm. The president deboarded at 2:17 pm and immediately walked over to shake hands with a group of supporters. He spent about 3-5 minutes greeting supporters.

Your pooler is told we will get the names of the group of 4-5 individuals that devoarded AF1 with the president.

We are currently in the vans and are heading to Lincoln Financial Field to see the game. As is customary, we are told the president will split time between the Army-Navy sidelines.
