(Harrisburg) -- Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are organizing in Pennsylvania as some Republican Party leaders are shifting their support in the contested primary. 

Sanders is making his first campaign visit to Pennsylvania, holding a morning rally today at Pittsburgh's David L. Lawrence Convention Center. 

The Vermont U.S. senator and Clinton now have offices open in Pittsburgh, Scranton and Harrisburg.

Meanwhile, Ohio Governor John Kasich is picking up more support from the party elite now that the GOP presidential field has narrowed to three. 

Both Kasich and Texas U.S. Senator Ted Cruz are scheduled to speak at the PA Leadership Conference in Camp Hill Friday.

Pennsylvania's April 26 primary is four weeks away, and voter registration is now closed with slightly over four million Democrats and slightly over three million Republicans.  

Voters will weigh in on the Republican and Democratic primaries for president, and pick party nominees for Congress, state attorney general and state Legislature.
