The Pennsylvania GOP's makeup has changed since Rick Santorum first won statewide office there in 1994 - and that's good news if he wants to win its presidential primary on April 24.
 
According to data provided by Brian Nutt, Santorum's Keystone State director, the party's center of power has shifted during the last two decades from the upscale, moderate Philadelphia and its suburbs to the religious, blue-collar center and western parts of the state.
