According to Section 2870 in the Pennsylvania Election Code…..In the case of a candidate for nomination as President of the United States, it shall not be necessary for such candidate to file the affidavit required in this section to be filed by candidates, but the post-office address of such candidate shall be stated in such nomination petition.
The office of President would fall under the Federal jurisdiction.
State candidates circulate petitions and file with the PA Dept. of State and submit their candidate’s affidavit. If a person would like to object to either of those documents then they would have to file an objection in Commonwealth Court.
I hope this information has been helpful.
