The Morning Call reported Thursday night that Mitt Romney is planning a visit to the Philadelphia suburbs Sunday.
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will visit Bucks County just two days before Election Day, the Morning Call reported Thursday night. Reporter Colby Itkowitz of the Morning Call's Washington, D.C. bureau wrote the visit is "the strongest evidence yet of Romney making a last-second play for the state." "Until now, Romney largely has ignored Pennsylvania and its 20 electoral college votes on the belief that the Democrat-leaning state could not be swayed. Fresh polls have shown the race tightening," Itkowitz reported. Romney made a campaign stop on the Main Line at Valley Forge Military Academy at the end of September.

Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, makes a campaign stop in Wescosville Monday to drum up support for the Obama-Biden ticket in the final weeks of the campaign.
Laura J. Marie has been so frustrated with friends and family who do not support the Obama-Biden ticket that she went online a few days ago to offer to help the president's re-election campaign.

"I only wish I did it sooner." Marie, who said she voted for Obama in 2008, was clearly among like-minded individuals as she waited for Jill Biden to approach the podium. Some, like Allentown resident and retired Salisbury High School art teacher Dolly Yanolko, were quite emphatic in their support for the president. “Any teacher who doesn’t vote for a …

A group of about 25 picketed the Republican vice presidential candidate's Aug. 21 speech in West Chester.
An overwhelming majority of the crowd that gathered at West Chester’s American Helicopter Museum on Tuesday to see Paul Ryan did so in support of the Republican vice presidential candidate. Andrea Lynch was not in this majority. “I am a woman, and I have three daughters, and this is appalling to me. We are moving backwards in our rights and even respect,” said Lynch, a Malvern resident who was one of roughly 25 protesters who clustered along the venue's Airport Road entrance in the run-up to the 3:30 p.m. speech. Lynch, like many of the picketers, was incensed by what she views as the Republican ticket’s hostility to abortion rights. She carried two placards: one that read “Catholic Mother for Choice” another that asked “What is Legitimate…
