Several candidates hoping to face Senator Bob Casey next year say the payroll tax cut compromise he supported isn’t good enough. They told PoliticsPA that Republicans in the U.S. House are right to hold out on the deal.
The Republican-drawn congressional map passed the Pa. House Tuesday by a surprisingly wide margin of 136 to 61. 40 percent of the Democratic caucus voted in its favor, 8 GOPers voted no. We take a look at who and why.
Bob Vander Plaats, the President of the Iowa Family Leader, and Chuck Hurley, President of Iowa Family Policy Center, threw their support behind his campaign.
Rep. Jason Altmire feels pretty good about the way the GOP drew the new 12th district. So good, in fact, that he sent a letter to Pa. House Dems from his area asking them to vote for it.
Eugene DePasquale (D-York) is well on his way to becoming the consensus Democratic candidate for Auditor General. His campaign rolled out a massive list of endorsements on Tuesday, including congressmen, county officials, labor groups and the majority of his colleagues in the Pa. House.
