Yes, Pennsylvania is in play … The Romney campaign jumps all over the Keystone State momentum sending Paul Ryan to Pittsburgh tomorrow. This location is a brilliant choice by the Romney campaign. First, chances are you will get a large turnout because it is a population center. Second, sending Ryan tests the waters with a surrogate rather than the more vital use of the top guy. If things go well and you see poll movement the pump is primed for a push with Romney. Third, the visit is guaranteed to generate plenty of news like any other campaign stop in a major media market. This gets heightened based on the aggressiveness of playing on Obama’s turf. Fourth, Pittsburgh media coverage reaches well into eastern Ohio which is blue Obama country. The obvious boon there cannot be underestimated. Very shrewd on many levels.
