'If Pennsylvania goes, so will go the country'

PHILADELPHIA — Pennsylvania has emerged as the keystone state of the entire race for the White House.

In the last three days of the presidential election, the campaigns of both Donald Trump and Joe Biden have made the swing state their home, with Pennsylvania surfacing as the president’s new top focus, his aides said.

Trump spent Saturday crisscrossing the state from the Delaware Valley to fracking country to north central Pennsylvania to stage four rallies. He’ll return for a stop in the northeast on the eve of the election. Biden sees Pennsylvania as so important that he is spending the final day of the 2020 campaign here, barnstorming “all four corners of the state” with his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, and their spouses, staff said.

“We are the Keystone State,” said Pennsylvania Democratic Attorney General Josh Shapiro. “It’s clear from an Electoral College perspective, if you look at the map from last cycle, just how pivotal Pennsylvania is. At the end of the day, I think if Pennsylvania goes, so will go the country.”

3. The EC needs to go.

We can't keep having elections where only five states matter.

7. It's a firewall against Barr and Kavanaugh for now

We would be in a hell of a situation right now if the election was run by the DOJ.

6. My friends and family in NE PA

Are all blue collar, hard working, nothing ever came easy people... and by a huge majority, they’re voting for Trump. I’ve said before here, PA is the state that keeps me up at night. I haven’t thought about the state this much since I first left it 30 years ago.
