    hopes of picking up Pennsylvania, where Santorum tied Obama in head-to-head polls last month, although many are pushing for Rubio to try to lock up Florida.  

    Also, many social conservatives favor Santorum as the canditate of right-wing social values, and he is young enough to be cultivated for 2020, after their hope for two terms of Romney.

    While Dems have many pathways to the White House without Florida, trying to win without Pennsylvania would be more challanging as it often foretells how neighboring industrial heartland, and Great Lake states are going. If past correlations held up, if  PA falls, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnosota, West Virginia, and others would already be out of reach. Fortunately, I know of no evidence that this would be a causal link.
