The presidential yard-sign count along Route 30 in central PA is holding steady at one sign for Obama and zero signs for Clinton. I guess everyone was too busy registering voters to put up many signs over the weekend.

Or perhaps there is little interest in the Democratic presidential contest among denizens of the Lincoln Highway. Other contests (all Republican) have yielded a forest of signs.

Signs for Republican PA legislative candidate Mike Rishel had been popping up slowly. Now they are everywhere, slowly being matched by his primary opponent, Will Tallman, who appears to have a large family.

A third GOP candidate for state senate, Jim Taylor, also is gaining ground. Nonetheless, he is still running far behind his rivals, Rich Alloway and Cathy Cresswell. Taylor’s support seems centered in New Oxford, while Alloway and Cresswell appear to own the rest of Adams County toward Gettysburg.

The latest polls show Hillary Clinton gaining momentum in Pennsylvania. But the yard signs on Route 30 tell a different story. Her lone supporter appears to have had second thoughts and taken down the sign I saw last week. In its wake is a sign for Barack Obama in front of a house on the eastern edge of New Oxford. He now is in the lead, 1-0.

The sign is significant given that this stretch of highway is fairly hostile territory for any Democrat, let alone one facing his own Sistah Souljah moment. Is it just me or does Obama seem more like Bill Clinton circa ’92 every day?

The campaign that is drawing more attention along the Lincoln Highway pits Cathy Cresswell against Rich Alloway. The two Republicans are competing for a state Senate seat whose current occupant, Terry Punt, is retiring. The two candidates probably have more than three dozen signs along Route 30. Wherever one appears, the other is sure to follow.
