The results of the presidential primary contests held Tuesday in Pennsylvania, as well as four other states, could have a significant impact on the fate of the eventual nominees.

Already the contest in Pennsylvania has proved interesting: more than 165,000 of the state’s voters switched their party registration for the closed primary. Many are also wondering about the effects of Pennsylvania Republican’s unique system of electing uncommitted delegates.

As Here & Now’s election road trip continues through Pennsylvania, host Jeremy Hobson speaks with Noah Brode of public radio station WESA in Pittsburgh and Natasha Brown of CBS 3 in Philadelphia about how the presidential candidates are appealing to the state’s voters.
