Dems on the road in Pennsylvania

Both Democratic candidates were in the area as they continue the battle for Pennsylvania. Barack Obama arrived to a capacity crowd inside the Muhlenberg College gymnasium after a campaign stop in Lancaster County.

Action News spoke with the senator one-on-one afterwards, when he told us he knows overcoming a double-digit lead in the Pennsylvania polls will be tough, but says he's been in this position before.

"We don't have a government that's fighting for ordinary workers and if I'm consistent with that message, I'm confident we can win in Pennsylvania and I'm confident we win all across the country," Obama said.

Meantime, his rival in the primaries was one county away tonight in Fairless Hillls, Bucks County.

Hillary Clinton held a rally at an industrial complex there touting her plan to boost the lagging economy, which includes eliminating tax breaks and subsidies for special interests.

"There is no justification under the sun for the oil companies to be getting tax breaks when they don't need them, when they're making a profit, and when gas prices are going up," Clinton said.

Clinton enjoys the support of Governor Ed Rendel and Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter.

Remember, Obama endorsed Chaka Fattah in the mayoral race.
