This was John McCain's key state.
The path to 270 electoral votes went straight through Pennsylvania. It was a must-have.
You'll remember McCain campaign manager Rick Davis talking about Pennsylvania two nights ago.
"If Barack Obama hasnâ€™t closed the deal with them after two years in the campaign and a year as the nominee of their party, maybe theyâ€™re holding out for a good reason,â€ť he said following a campaign rally. â€śNow, maybe they just decided not to vote and they donâ€™t want to say that because everyone they know is voting. So weâ€™ll see. If we see the vote drop below 130 million, youâ€™ll know they didnâ€™t show up. If it goes over youâ€™ll know they came out. I think thatâ€™s a good chance for us to win."
"The John McCain plan for victory has crashed,'' said Matthews.
