This is a video from my show Counterpoint PA, the only grassroots progressive newscast exclusively about Pennsylvania politics.

In The Breakdown, I share an exclusive video I recorded of Democratic PA gubernatorial candidate Katie McGinty taking questions about fracking, marijuana reform, genetically engineered foods, education, and social services. She distinguished herself from Governor Corbett, but didn't say much to distinguish herself from other Democratic candidates or come off as particularly progressive. That was my take, which I provide in a little commentary, but the video is shown uninterrupted and in full so you can make your own decision.

For a transcript, links to the sources used in this story, or to browse the show's categorized video archive, go to http://counterpointpa.org. (Go here if you want to go right to the post for this video.)

Stay in touch on Twitter @CounterpointPA and on Facebook at http://facebook.com/... and stay tuned tonight for the show's homage to Keith Olbermann, the Worst Pennsylvanians of the Week.

(You may have noticed The Breakdown topic changed from what was scheduled, but here's the good news - the Sean Kitchen interview will still be coming out as a bonus video ASAP, so you just wind up with more to watch.)
