PoliticsPA’s Morning Buzz: 12/10 Edition
If you were putting together a dream team of political operatives in Pa., then you would want to use our list of the top political operatives. Sen. Casey is going to need all the operatives he can get because the rumor mill shows that Rep. Dent is seriously considering a challenge to the incumbent senator and the Post-Gazette takes the Pa. angle on the House Democratic Caucus rejecting the President’s tax cut deal. In addition, Gov. Rendell got Auditor General Jack Wagner’s approval for a smaller bond measure. Good Friday morning and welcome to the Buzz. Be sure to check out Up & Down later today.
