BLUE BELL, Pa. (CBS) – On this, the final day before Election Day, the candidates are making their final push, and part of that effort is focused on Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvania had been largely ignored this election season, but the Romney campaign had a heavy presence here this weekend, and today there are a pair of campaign stops on behalf of the Obama campaign from former President Bill Clinton.
Voters here in Blue Bell say they aren’t surprised the two campaigns are focusing on Pennsylvania. They are somewhat surprised it took this long, as the Keystone State was colored blue so early.
John Thomas from Blue Bell says “We have a Republican governor, we have a Republican senator, we have a lot of Republicans in office. So it can go either way, I think it just depends on how the people are feeling on who is the right leader for the right time.”
No surprise, predictions by voters here tend to fall along party lines, though they all say they expect Pennsylvania to be close.
