    Hasn't the state's population shifted to the East since then?  The population of the Democratic primary electorate might have shifted that way even more.  Worth looking into.

      Central PA counties on the MD line posted census gains. (Adams, York, Lancaster, etc.)

        here's a list of growth by CD, with the fastest growing CDs at the top. (The first four CDs will need to shed population)

        PA-19 (York)
        PA-06 (Reading/Ardmore)
        PA-16 (Lancaster)
        PA-15 (Lehigh Valley)
        PA-11 (Northeast)
        PA-17 (Harrisburg)
        PA-13 (MontCo/NE Philly)
        PA-07 (DelCo)
        PA-08 (Bucks)
        PA-10 (Scranton/Wilkes-Barre)
        PA-09 (Southern Pennsyltucky)
        PA-01 (Philly)
        PA-18 (Pittsburgh suburbs)
        PA-05 (Northern Pennsyltucky)
        PA-04 (West Central)
        PA-03 (NW)
        PA-02 (Philly)
        PA-12 (SW)
        PA-14 (Pittsburgh)

        So while population has shifted eastward, it doesn't necessarily benefit Philly/Philly suburbs as much as one might think. The rough order of growth has been...Philly exurbs, northeast, Philly suburbs, the T, Philly proper, and west PA.
