SCRANTON --It's no secret the Keystone State was key in the presidential election, helping get Donald Trump into the White House.
Trump met with President Barack Obama Thursday.
In the meantime, national and international reporters and photographers are descending on this area, Northeastern Pennsylvania, eager to see exactly why local voters did what they did.
"We wanted to understand perhaps why people would vote for Trump,” said Magali Bathes, a television news reporter from Paris, France.
She and a photographer spoke with people in Luzerne County Thursday about why they chose Trump.
"In France, we don't really understand this big phenomenon with Donald Trump,” she said.
In Scranton, an ABC News crew out of New York City spoke with people at Chick’s Diner.
"You get a really different perspective in the big cities whether it's on the east coast, the west coast or Chicago and here there are a group of people who think they've been forgotten by politicians in Washington and they're hoping Donald Trump will bring a different perspective,” said reporter David Wright.
Some locals say they are surprised by the attention the area is getting after the election.
"Surprised with all the people coming in and different nationalities and I just really am surprised,” said Donald Raebel of Scranton.
“I was surprised for all those people to come and cover it, I was glad, too,” said Peggy Dougherty of Scranton.
