McCain: “We're Going to Win Here”

GOP candidate fighting for Pennsylvania

Republican John McCain is telling Pennsylvania voters he knows momentum for his campaign is here.

Polls show Democratic rival Barack Obama comfortably ahead in the state, but McCain isn't giving up on trying to win its 21 electoral votes.

Campaigning Sunday in Wallingford, Delaware County, McCain told about 1,500 supporters at Strath Haven High School that he's been in a lot of campaigns and knows the momentum is there. He says he's a few points down but he's coming back.

The Arizona senator was introduced by former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge, who called McCain "John the President," a nod to "Joe the Plumber," the Ohio man McCain has incorporated into his campaign.

Sen. Joe Lieberman and Sen. Arlen Spector also showed their support for McCain at the rally.

On Saturday McCain campaigned in Perkasie, Bucks County, where he joked with Phillies fans that his first executive order would be to never let an infomercial delay the start of the World Series.

Following the Wallingford event on Sunday, McCain traveled to Scranton, Pa., before heading for events in New Hampshire and Florida.
