2. I wish Turzai would go away too.



All these years, I never ever had such frustration with the state legislature as I have had since that 2010 redistricting/gerrymandering/election of Corbett. Wolf has been the only thing standing between us becoming a Wisconsin.

We need to take back the state House.

3. Can't take it back with no candidates

Out here where I am, Jim Marshall got a Dem opponent, but the Dems running against Christiana and Bernstine both got knocked off the ballot because some of their nominating petitions were notarized without the circulator present. Bernstine's opponent will run a write-in in the primary, but Christiana's won't bother.

4. Well... at least some are trying

In the past, so many of these seats went completely uncontested, so at least it's good to know the interest is there... and there is another chance in 2 years.

5. Bernstine's district was gerrymandered to elect a Dem

even! But the small urban centers in it just don't vote. Apathy abounds, it's sad. I wish some of these Parkland kids would move up here and light a fire...
