6/9 Morning Buzz

The big story of the day is that Allyson Schwartz was one of the first House Democrats to call for Representative Weiner to resign. It was noteworthy not only because she was one of the first in Weiner’s party to do so but it was also an important announcement because of the leadership role Rep. Schwartz has undertaken with the DCCC.

There was a large Marcellus Shale rally at the State Capitol on Tuesday. We spoke to some of the activists and they told us what they were trying to tell legislators as well as the Governor.

We also took a look at some of the releases and speeches that have been made by the Pa. Congressional delegation on the military campaign in Libya.
