As expected, the electoral drama featured Pennsylvania as a prominent player. With the race between Republican President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden too close to call, all eyes were on the Keystone State — and a handful of others — as hours turned into days while all-decisive mail-in ballots were tallied.
There were protests. There were threats. There were legal challenges. But through it all, Pennsylvania — its state leaders, poll workers, police officers and citizens — stepped up, remained calm and comported themselves with professionalism and dignity.
