Republican former Governor and Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge explains to NPR’s Scott Horsley this morning why John McCain will actually win Pennsylvania, despite support for Barack Obama in the big cities of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh:
You got the values voters in the Northeast and the Southwest, these are men and women in families that a lot of small towns, churchgoers, you got a lot of veterans in Pennsylvania, the veterans certainly break generally toward John’s way. I’ve traveled around the state enough in the past three months to dispute what the polls say.
Because those people in the cities of Pennsylvania don’t have values or familes. They all just screw one another randomly and put their children in collective housing. Right, Tom?
