Overview
Pennsylvania, with 23 electoral votes, was a battleground state from beginning to end, drawing much attention and resources from both campaigns.  Before the race even got underway, both parties considered holding their nominating conventions in Philadelphia.  On Election Night itself, when networks prematurely called Florida for Bush, Pennsylvania was for a time seen as a must-win for Bush.  As it was, Gore-Lieberman carried the state with a plurality of 204,840 votes (4.17 percentage points).  Bush carried 49 counties to 18 for Gore, but Gore won in the five most populous counties, including a plurality of 348,223 votes in Philadelphia County.
General Election Activity
Notes: In Pennsylvania the Republicans and Democrats are major parties, while the Constitution Party and the Libertarian Party qualify as minor parties.  Others are referred to as "political bodies."  Minor party and other presidential candidates wishing to appear on the ballot in the general election needed to obtain signatures from 21,739 registered electors (2% of the highest showing by a candidate in the last statewide election) in the period from Jan. 26-Aug. 1, 2000. 
Last day to register before the November election: Oct. 10, 2000.
Other races: Incumbents won several closely fought House races.  10th District. Don Sherwood (R) defeated Pat Casey (D) 52.1% to 47.9% (124,830 to 112,580).  13th District. Joe Hoeffel (D) defeated Stewart Greenleaf (R) 52.8% to 45.7% (146,026 to 126,501 with  4,224 votes going to the Libertarian).  15th District. Pat Toomey (R) fended off a challenge from Ed O'Brien (D) 53.3 to 46.7% (118,307 to 103,864).
