Will Mitt Romney’s recent push to earn the votes of Pennsylvania pay off? Last night’s rally in Yardley Pennsylvania would indicate YES as upwards of 30,000 people packed the Shady Brook Farm venue for an event that had only been announced 48 hours earlier.

THE STANDS were packed, the bright lights were on and the crowd was chanting. It was a frigid Bucks County night in early November, but it wasn’t a Council Rock-Pennsbury football game.
It was Mitt Romney’s final drive for the White House, his two-minute drill of a stump speech and a Hail Mary pass to win a state that hasn’t gone for a Republican presidential candidate in nearly a quarter-century.
And it was electric. Traffic clogged the main exit ramp off nearby Interstate 95. Some Romney fans on Twitter even dubbed the large and enthusiastic gathering “Mittstock.”
…“With this turnout, we think it’s going to be a nice surprise on Tuesday,” Laureen Vinicombe said of the former Massachusetts governor’s chance of winning Pennsylvania.
Her husband said it was vital that Romney win to prevent Obama from accomplishing his “liberal agenda.” LINK
