Law Moves Up Pennsylvania's Presidential Primary To Tomorrow

(HARRISBURG) - In an attempt to increase Pennsylvania's relevance in the presidential race, the General Assembly today passed a measure that moves the commonwealth's primary up from next April to tomorrow.

Gov. Ed Rendell added his signature to the legislation moments after it was approved by lawmakers. "While we realize it's short notice, we shouldn't have trouble finding old people to work the polls," he said. "It's not like they have anything else to do, other than play the slots."

The new law means Pennsylvania's presidential primary will happen behind those of just 21 other states, all of which decided to hold their contests earlier this week after catching word of the commonwealth's plans.
