Reader Poll: PA’s Republican Presidential Primary Will be Competitive

    Me thinks the GOP contest will be competitive even then because of the number of well-financed candidates who can last longer than in previous years.

    Here’s the real mystery. Pennsylvania is a complex state when it comes to getting eligible with delegate candidates and what not. How does Trump expect to be competitive in PA when he has not developed a boots-on-the-ground organization here.

    He has spent so little money overall that there must be a number of states where he is truly not yet competitive.

    In PA, first day to get signatures on petitions is Jan. 26. The Iowa primary is not until Feb. 1..

    I would welcome settling a residual Trump-Cruz “finalist” contest by supporting the latter…and ending the conflict [“winner take all”].

    Red State Pennsylvanians given a choice between a Canadian born Cuban from the Canary Islands, Cruz – A Cuban from Little Havana in Miami, Rubio, A Black Neurosurgeon, Carson or The Trumpmeister will be casting their votes for Trump.
