Obama, McCain Fight for Votes in Pa

Seven days and counting.  The window is quickly closing for the presidential candidates to show off their stuff in Pennsylvania.

Democratic candidate Barack Obama is at Widener University in Chester today.

Obama, making his closing argument to the American people, returned yesterday to the soaring rhetoric of his campaign's early days, calling for new politics free of partisan divisions and promising to "change the world."

The Chester-Upland School District, calling the Obama rally a "historic day in Chester," closed schools and cancelled all after-hour events.

Republican candidate John McCain and running mate Gov. Sarah Palin made a joint appearance in Hershey at the Giant Center.  

The Republican outdoor rally at Memorial Stadium in Quakertown was cancelled today due to rain.

McCain, beginning his own final sprint in Pa yesterday, said his proposal for individual and corporate tax cuts would spur investment that creates jobs. "Barack the Redistributor," he said, would raise taxes and increase government spending, stifling growth.

McCain's running mate, Sarah Palin, will be in Shippensburg Tuesday afternoon and at State College Tuesday evening.
