  1. gulag Pittsburgh says:

    PLCB Brazzell is ignorant. Tell us how many locations in PA outside State Stores can sell alcohol products? Where are they located? How many counties lack such outlets? Give us a map of PA with a few dots of the few store locations. Give the clerks masks and open the damn stores. I have never seen gobs of people in a State Store (or whatever cute names you give them these days).

  2. REDLOGIC says:

    Moving the primary is advantage Matt Cartwright in PA 8th because now the Republicans will spend an entire month and half longer beating each other up and spending money rather than raising money to defeat the left in the general election. If the Republican Party were smart they’d all consolidate behind Granville who is way ahead of everyone else, is who R Leader McCarthy endorsed, and they’d tell all the others to drop out of the race for the sake of the seat. But Republicans always like to beat each other up and they will do it again and then keep the seat blue. Logic won’t prevail. Too many big egos.
