Romney camp memo says Pennsylvania's in play

Mitt Romney's campaign is claiming Pennsylvania is within their reach, a contention hotly disputed by the Obama forces.

Tuesday, Romney political director Rich Beeson wrote a memo detailing the Republican's prospects:

"Pennsylvania presents a unique opportunity for the Romney campaign.  Over the past few years we have seen Pennsylvania voting for a Republican senator and a Republican governor, and Republicans win control of the State House in addition to the State Senate.

"The western part of the Keystone State has become more conservative (and President Obama’s war on coal is very unpopular there), and Mitt Romney is more competitive in the voter-rich Philadelphia suburbs than any Republican nominee since 1988. This makes Pennsylvania a natural next step as we expand the playing field."
