SCRANTON -- With Election Day almost here, Vice President Joe Biden once again turned to his hometown of Scranton.

“It all may come down to Pennsylvania, no joke, and the two most important cities in Pennsylvania are Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and Pittsburgh,” Biden said.

During a Democratic campaign rally at Johnson College on Sunday, he talked about his family's history in Lackawanna County.

“For all Scrantonians, for everyone in the valley that is thinking of voting for Donald Trump, I ask you think about your mother,” said Biden.

The crowd came to life as Biden described a future with equal opportunities for women. If elected, Hillary Clinton and Katie McGinty would both break new ground.

“This election is different. This is different. The first woman president? I am excited. I am 60 years old, very excited,” said Lynn Gluck of Harmony Township.

Another woman's name was on many people lips: Crystal DeAntona. The teacher's warm-up speech was a hit with the crowd and the vice president.

“He (Biden) was so sweet. Backstage, it's all light and darkness, and I think he lifted me off the ground,” said Crystal DeAntona of Scranton.

Not everyone we met plans to vote a straight ticket.

Matt Catanzaro says he would have supported Biden, but now will vote for Trump.

“We've got choices that are really hard to pick,” said Catanzaro.
