3/22 Morning Buzz

PoliticsPA wants your opinion for our Harrisburg Superlatives, the yearbook-style list of “bests” in Harrisburg. The suggestions are already coming in.

Who do you think is the best orator? Who is the best dressed? Who has the most district pride? You can submit your suggestions to those categories and more by posting them on Sy’s facebook wall, tweeting them @PoliticsPA, joining the discussion on this story, or simply by replying to this email.

PoliticsPA alum Alex Roarty reports for the National Journal that Ed Stack, the wealth CEO of Dicks Sporting Goods is calling GOP leaders about a possible challenge to Senator Bob Casey.

The NRCC is still swinging at former Rep. Pat Murphy over health care, apparently in anticipation of a potential rematch in 2012.

Milton Street survived a ballot challenge can will continue his challenge to Mayor Nutter.

And Governor Corbett’s budget continues to take heat, this time because it draws from a tobacco revenue fund dedicated to health programs.
