Please, RNC, please spend lots of your money trying to win Pennsylvania! It will really inspire our Democratic voter turnout in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh:

PHILADELPHIA — Republican leaders, candidates and campaign strategists are assembling in the City of Brotherly Love to give conservatives from its collar counties a glimpse of the party's rising stars and make the case for winning Pennsylvania in the 2016 presidential election.

A GOP win in the state would be the first in 28 years.

“We're making a commitment to Pennsylvania and other crucial swing states across the country,” said Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus. “By investing in Pennsylvania early and engaging in every community across the state, we can make the inroads needed to win in 2016.

[...]The 2015 Northeast Republican Leadership Conference is similar to a southern GOP conference, 20 years running and held in Oklahoma City last month.

Pennsylvania Republican Party Chairman Ron Gleason said he chose Philadelphia to host the group because it is “where the lion's share of the vote is in Pennsylvania.” About 45 percent of the state's 8.2 million registered voters live in Philly's five surrounding counties, he said.

About 3 million Pennsylvanians are registered Republican, state records show.

“We are here to make our case on how we win this state, finally,” Gleason said. “... We have an opportunity here. We have put the right people in place; we have devoted money, people, and have a good message to win over skeptical voters.”
