Casey wins Senate race in Pennsylvania

(CNN) – Freshman Democratic Sen. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania was re-elected Tuesday, according to a CNN projection. The win preserves a seat for Democrats in the narrowly divided chamber that Republicans had hopes late in the race of winning.

GOP candidate Tom Smith, a wealthy business executive, lagged far behind Casey for much of the race. But in the last few weeks he spent heavily on advertising and was able to narrow the polls but never take the lead.

Romney adviser lays out Pennsylvania strategy

(CNN) - A top adviser for Mitt Romney's campaign explained Sunday why he thinks the GOP nominee can win Pennsylvania, a Democratic-leaning battleground that Romney's team has lumped into its final swing-state push.

"You have Obama who is under-performing, and we're over-performing and as a result you have president in a critical battleground state below 50 (percent) and it's presented us an opportunity," Kevin Madden said on a flight with reporters.

Emanuel says Pennsylvania is safe, Libya should not be politicized

(CNN) – Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who previously served as President Barack Obama's chief of staff, said he believes the president's campaign "is set" in Pennsylvania - but he cautioned it's better to be safe than sorry.

"I think Pennsylvania is secure, but you don't take anything for granted," Emanuel said in an interview that aired Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." "There are going to be a lot of people going back to Ohio in the (final) 96 hours, multiple times. They'll go to Pennsylvania."

Conservative groups launch new ad campaign in Michigan and Pennsylvania

Washington (CNN) - Two major conservative groups working to defeat President Barack Obama launched new ad offensives in Michigan and Pennsylvania as they hope to build support in two states some Republicans think they a chance of winning.

Americans for Prosperity, a group advocating for limited government and cutting government spending, on Thursday began a $3 million media campaign in the two states, running a previously-aired commercial that features people it says voted for the president in 2008 and will not do so again.

Trademark mustache in play if some Dem states fall

(CNN) – With polls showing the presidential race tightening Michigan, Minnesota, and Pennsylvania - and Republicans signaling they think those three Democratic states could be in play - whoever wins these states could come out on top by a close shave.

And if GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney takes any of those states, a top adviser to President Barack Obama says shaving is just what he'll do.
