NBC10’s Lauren Mayk walks us through why Pennsylvania is so important to the presidential hopefuls.
As for Donald Trump, who romped in New York: He spent a paltry $67,000 on ads, a review of spending by the Center for Public Integrity found.
There are 71 Pennsylvania Republican delegates. In some states delegates are awarded proportionally; in some they are awarded on a winner-takes-all basis; in some they are awarded winner-takes-all by congressional district; and in some cases delegates are chosen in a state convention dominated by party insiders. Beginning with the second ballot, they are as uncommitted as the 54 elected delegates. A Democratic candidate needs 2,383 delegates to secure the nomination, and there are still 1,692 delegates available.
Many delegate candidates are relatively anonymous, and some are better-known officeholders. Clinton raised far less – about $29 million for her campaign and through a joint account with the national and state parties.
“You’re paying for this election; it’s administered by the state, [and] you have a right to vote”.
Clinton mentioned how, perhaps providing the Vermont senator with a blueprint.
While Biden has not endorsed either Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nominee, he has not been shy about talking about the state of the race and the two candidates.
According to an Associated Press report, Republican Party officials say they expect an onslaught of delegate persuasion to begin in earnest after the election. I’m not concerned. Again, when Hillary walks into that convention leading with the popular vote, leading with the pledged delegates, I don’t understand the rationale for all these super delegates to suddenly support Sen. While supporters of both Sanders and Clinton continue to be at a war of words on social media, Republican front runner Donald Trump is taking advantage of the turmoil.
Clinton is campaigning outside Philadelphia as part of a sprint toward the April 26 primaries in the Keystone State, as well as Delaware, Connecticut, Maryland and Rhode Island. NBC10’s Aundrea Cline-Thomas has that story.
But Clinton ended the quarter with more cash on hand than any other presidential candidate, about $29 million. Many are remaining noncommittal, at least publicly.
“I don’t think any Democrat’s ever won saying, ‘We can’t think that big – we ought to really downsize here because it’s not realistic, ‘” Biden said.
