HARRISBURG – Tightening independent polls are giving hope to Republicans in Pennsylvania, although the presidential campaigns show no signs of bringing their candidates or TV ads back to the state.

Instead, Pennsylvania’s highest-profile politicians are finding themselves increasingly busy on the campaign trail, including Gov. Tom Corbett and U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, both Republicans, and former Gov. Ed Rendell, a Democrat.

In State College on Monday night, Toomey made time for a crowd of several dozen at a Centre County Republican Party dinner and told them that a sixth straight win for a Democrat in Pennsylvania’s presidential election is not inevitable.  After all, Pennsylvanians elected himself and Corbett just two years ago and 12 of 19 U.S. House seats are held by Republicans, he said.

  1. Pennsylvania will always be a battle ground state. Since we lost most of the steel industry back in the late 70’s and early 80’s,jobs are a BIG topic in election years. We need jobs to replace the ones we’ve lost more than 30 years ago. This is an area big on coal, natural gas drilling and factory jobs. We “red-neck Pennsylvanians who cling to our GOD and guns” are some of the hardest working people in the country.
    Oblamer doesn’t seem to understand that.
    I hope Mitt Romney starts to spend a little more time here in the Keystone state.
    Oblamer can stay on his golf course.
