Pennsylvania Doesn’t Hold the ‘Biggest Promise’ for the GOP in 2016

… Pennsylvania voted for President Barack Obama by just 5.4 points—as much as Colorado and less than Obama’s wider victories in battlegrounds like Iowa, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, and Nevada. That margin is partly why Amy Walter of the Cook Political Report believes that Pennsylvania is a “GOP keystone,” representing “the biggest promise” for the party in 2016. I disagree. While the next Republican candidate should campaign in Pennsylvania, winning the state’s 20 electoral votes will be tough—probably tougher than any battleground state, save Nevada. [cont.]
