  1. gulag, wasn’t Pittsburgh committing wholesale assault on the environment for decades, while the conditions were also killing hard working blue-collar Americans? And you have the nerve to call yourself a Democrat.

  2. Corbett won York County by 14 points despite losing statewide by almost 10. You could run a candidate who spends his weekends dancing around bonfires dressed up in white sheets, and, as long as he had an R in front of his name, he’d win. Heck, he’d probably win by 20.

  3. Does this surprise anyone? The real questions is, who comes out ahead in Allegheny County, Wagner or Turzai 😉

  4. Dem York county folk really like dem some Scott Wagner….he loves fredom, gunssss and hates da governments mmmhmmmmmm.

  5. This isn’t surprising. York County is blood red. Napoleon would win there if he ran as an R. Corbett beat the favorite son there in 2014. Though it is worth noting, the idea of a Governor Scott Wagner puts me into a cold sweat.
