Pennsylvania: In addition to the Presidential contest, Pennsylvania has a regular Primary election with four interesting races:
for Attorney General, Former Congressman Patrick Murphy (endorsed by David Alexrod) and Lackawanna County ADA Kathleen Kane (endorsed by Bill Clinton) compete for the Democratic nomination. Kane led in the latest polling.
for US Senate, five Republicans are running for the right to lose to Bob Casey.
in CD-12, redistricting pushes Congressmen Mark Critz and Jason Altmire together for a mano a mano battle. Last polling gave Altmire the lead, but Critz was narrowing the gap.
