McCain: "We're Going To Win Pennsylvania"

From CBS News' John Bentley:

(WALLINGFORD, PA.) - At the kickoff event for his two-day whirlwind tour before Election Day, John McCain expressed confidence in winning Pennsylvania.

"I've been in a lot of campaigns. I know when the momentum is there. This enthusiasm, this kind of welcome, we're going to win Pennsylvania, we're going to win this election," McCain said at a rally here. "I sense it and I feel it and I know it."

While the crowd of around 2,000 here was certainly enthusiastic – McCain had to pause several times for spontaneous shouting from the audience – most of the polling in Pennsylvania still shows Barack Obama with a comfortable, but not airtight, lead. The most recent statewide polls show an uptick for McCain while Obama has held steady, putting the spread at about seven points.
