Pa. primary on Tuesday

The eyes of the nation are on Pennsylvania with the Keystone State set to potentially decide the Democratic nomination in the primary election set for Tuesday, April 22.

With 158 delegates up for grabs, our state is, by far, the largest left in the primary season. Hillary Clinton once held a nearly 20-point lead over rival Barack Obama , but recent polls suggest Obama has pulled to as close as five percentage points.

If Clinton can claim a significant victory in Pennsylvania, her campaign will roll on behind the premise that Obama can’t win big states. It’s considered very unlikely that Obama could win the state outright—a win for him would be a very close loss – but if he could win or keep the loss close, it would solidify his insurmountable lead in pledged delegates.

Only voters registered Democrat by March 24 are eligible to vote in Pennsylvania’s primary. So all you registered Democrats, hit the polls on Tuesday and make sure your voice is heard.
