Rendell: Pa. Closer Than You Think

Pennsylvania’s Democratic Gov. Ed Rendell says the presidential race between Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain in his state is “closer than the polls indicate.”

He insisted on Friday that Obama does not have a double-digit lead in Pennsylvania and urged people to vote — suggesting they take an umbrella and dress warmly to battle the weather, the Wilkes-Barre Times Leader reported.

“Stay in that line and make sure you vote,” he told a gathering at Wilkes University.

“I’ve seen polls that have the race as close as four points.”

McCain’s political director Mike DuHaime expressed similar sentiments earlier in the week, telling reporters: “I think Pennsylvania seems really close."
