    I am very glad this was accomplished.

    I plan on working toward 2 more goals after this November's election...Remove Pat Toomey  and replace him with a REAL Democrat as our second Senator, and moving Bob Casey more toward the left from the moderate right position he now occupies...although I think this campaign sent him a wakeup call.

    Also working toward removing long time very rightist Rep Joe Pitts from office after decades of selling out the people of our state.

    Thanks to Keystone Progress for fighting for the PEOPLE of our state.

    You look at some people and wonder how they found their way out of the birth canal....

      comes to shove, he will vote with the Democrats on bills. He very eagerly voted for ACA and for ending DADT and more.

      We need to move him further left but he is making strides and when it is time to vote, rarely does he not vote with Democrats..very , very rarely if at all.

        I just want to see him more labor oriented and generally more progressive in his voting. I do understand that PA has more than our share of right wing ignorant crazies, but we do have a lot of old line Union and labor Democrats who seem to have been neglected for a long time...and would really respond to a little Democratic political love.
