    How does it look for the Dems to take back the Legislalture in 2014?

    Never be afraid to voice your opinion and fight for it . Corporations aren't people, they're Republicans (Rev Al Sharpton 10/7/2011) Voting is a louder voice than a bullhorn but sometimes you need that bullhorn to retain your vote.

    •  Senate more likely than Assembly (1+ / 0-)

      Assembly: 110 R vs. 93 D (barely changed between 2010 and 2012)

      Senate: 27 R vs. 23 D

    •  Depends on size of landslide (0+ / 0-)

      I can make an argument that neither are in play or that both are locks depending on the level of landslide that sinks Corbett. The key data points being:

      - what happens after May when we have an actual Democratic Party nominee

      - what the next budget looks like, especially in terms of schools

      - exactly how much damage is done to Corbett when Kane drops the full review of the Sandusky slow-play prosecution next September / October

      The really bad uphill fight for the Democrats is the ridiculous Gerrymander of the PA Senate and PA House that was pushed through recently. Although not a horrific as the US House districts, its a really bad map.

      Hopefully we get strong Dem candidates aligned around a similar anti-Corbett policy platform to capture at least one of the chambers of our legislature. I'll be doing my part to a$$I$t in flipping PA-26 Senate from Republican to Democrat.
