It appears from recent moves that the McCain campaign is looking to get to 252 by winning:
OH, FL, IN, MO, NC & NV

and then to go over the top they have two options
1. win CO AND VA (for a total of 274)
2. win PA (for a total of 273)

Recent reports suggest that they are going for plan B and pulling some money from CO to go into PA. Of course he is behind in VA, CO and PA so both strategies are long shots. But this is all he has left. So which one would you push.

IA seems hopeless and it would only help in the case of a loss of only CO. It isnt enough to offset a loss in VA (even if McCain holds CO). NH and IA would be enough to offset a loss in VA (but not both CO and VA).

There are a couple of new stories on the PA strategy:
Politico: McCain's Path To Victory Goes Through PA
538: McCain Brings Hope To PA

It seems that they are very serious about the PA strategy. It is hard to say that it is more of a longshot than winning both VA and CO, but it seems to be relying heavily on winning over conservative Democrats.
