Does Pennsylvania still put candidates' home county on the ballot? I think at one time they did hence the reason why even sometimes even in blowout races, a random county is lit up for a random other candidate.

they still do.. IIRC, the other states that put hometowns or home counties on primary ballots also include West Virginia and Kansas.

oh yes, NH/VT also list hometowns.

But yeah, the PA primaries are super-regional to this day

Very few maps illustrate the cultural divisions of Pennsylvania quite like this one does.

Cultural or regional?

Cultural differences ARE regional. I mean to say, we don't even speak the same language here in the west that they do in the east.

This is what happens when all you know about the candidate is where they're from. And probably shows the vast majority of folk don't know/care what the auditor does.

this primary was decided on the important issue of "which candidate lives closest to me"
