President Obama Visits PA
President Obama made his first visit since announcing his re-election this past week, to Bucks County, PA. The Morning Call reports:
“This trip is certainly a touch of foreshadowing of the year and a half to come — Pennsylvania can expect multiple visits from Obama as he attempts to re-energize those who voted for him before.”
The visit was at a town hall meeting at a wind-turbine plant where Obama discussed energy policy as well as politics.
“I do not think the president can win re-election without Pennsylvania, I think it is that simple,” said Larry Ceisler, a Philadelphia-based Democratic consultant. “We’re still considered a swing state and if people thought we were swinging to the Democratic side based on the last presidential elections, all you have to do is look at the last midterm.”
