Former President Bill Clinton, whose popularity on the stump many regard as President Barack Obama’s best hope for re-election, is scheduled to campaign in the battleground state of Pennsylvania Monday – a sure sign that the state is now up for grabs.

Clinton is making four stops in Pennsylvania – in Philadelphia, Blue Bell, Pittsburgh and Scranton, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. After visits by GOP candidate Mitt Romney and his running mate over the weekend, the move signals that a once-safe state may now be at risk for the Democrats.

Currently, Obama is leading the state by 3.9 points in the RealClearPolitics compendium of polls. But that lead has been steadily whittled down over the last month. Most observers have not rated the state’s 20 electoral votes as available to the Republicans as Ohio’s or even Florida’s. But the fact that the Democrats are deploying an asset as important as Clinton to the state must be worrisome for Obama.

Urgent Poll: Romney or Obama? Final Decision — Vote Now!

"During this final push over the past week, Clinton has held grassroots events in Iowa, Florida, Colorado, Ohio, Virginia, Minnesota, New Hampshire and Wisconsin,” Obama campaign wrote on its website.

“We have known all along that the race is going to be close in Pennsylvania although the President continues to hold a lead,” Montgomery County Democratic Chairman Marcel L. Groen told Sunday. “With both parties spending millions in the state in-last minute advertising and the opposition sending their candidates and surrogates, it would be foolish of us not to bring in our own heavy hitters.”
