Barack Obama is not conceding Pennsylvania without a fight although recent polls show Obama trailing Clinton by double digits. Barack Obama is kicking off a six day tour thru Pennsylvania beginning today in Pittsburgh. Also, Sen Bob Casey of Pennsylvania will be coming on board and officially endorsing Obama. Pennsylvania just concluded voter registration and a record 4 million voters will be participating on the April 22nd Primary. That\’s a lot of voters and it shows Pennsylvania voters are energized. Obama has in the past done very well when he was on the ground in a State and campaigned through the smaller towns and hamlets before an election. Although, it\’s an uphill challenge for Obama if he can keep it close in Pennsylvania close the spread and then win in North Carolina and Indiana he will be unstoppable to win the delegate count and thus the support of the superdelegates and the Nomination.
Here\’s a video of Senator Bob Casey endorsing Barack\’s campaign for President this morning in Pittsburgh.
