President Obama is in Pennsylvania today, campaigning for Democratic Senate candidate Joe Sestak.  

Two years ago, our own Andrea Bernstein, director of WNYC’s Transportation Nation project, visited Pennsylvania in a series we called “Counties that Count.”  The series looked at the issues motivating voters in counties that could hold powerful sway in highly contested states, back in the 2008 presidential election.  

Bernstein who returned to Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, a city and state very much in play this midterm election, to understand what’s driving voters this time around.
