Pennsylvania’s primary is late, this year it is April 26, and because of that, the Keystone State doesn’t always have a say in determining presidential contenders. Despite that, campaigns were scrambling Tuesday to beat a crucial deadline.
On Tuesday, a state government hearing room in Harrisburg turned into a bustling political hub.
Representatives from presidential political campaigns waited in line with petitions, with at least 2,000 signatures from supporters in Pennsylvania.
The deadline was 5 p.m. and all of the candidates currently campaigning in South Carolina filed in Pennsylvania.
