In the Special Election to fill the late John Murtha’s seat for District 12, Mark Critz (D) has defeated Tim Burns (R).
For Governor of Pennsylvania with present Governor Ed Rendell (D) reaching term limits this year, the Democrat primary winner, Dan Onorato, will face Tom Corbett, the Republican winner, plus a Libertarian, a challenger from the Constitution Party, and two Independents in November.
The incumbent, Arlen Specter (D) has been removed from contention and will sit home next January. His Democrat challenger and winner of the primary, Joe Sestak, will face Pat Toomey, the Republican primary winner, in November.
Off to a good start.
