PA Primary May 21

Does anyone have any recommendations for judges for the Superior Court. We can vote for two.
The democratic candidates are McCaffery, Tarasai, and Green-Hawkins.

Thanks!

Also, donít forget about the special election in PA12. We have a chance to pick up a new democratic congressman, Marc Friedenberg. GOTV!!!

2. After a lot of digging, I found these two were endorsed by the PADems:

Amanda Green-Hawkins and Daniel McCaffery for Superior Court judge.

It shouldnít have to be this hard. Itís even hard to find a sample ballot!

No wonder people go into the polling place without a clue and vote by name recognition. I still canít find anything on the candidates for Common Pleas court in our county. Our county line offices just have one candidate per office, so no-brainer there.

We also have about 10 candidates for school board and there is no way to know who the democrats are because they cross-file!

4. Dan McCafferty is former PA Supreme Court Justice Seamus

McCafferty's son. Seamus McCafferty had to resign in the pornmail scandal that swept the state a few years ago. Seamus McCafferty became well-known for "Eagles Court", the court set up in the bowels of the football stadium that handled rowdy fans on the spot.

I voted for Tarasi and Green-Hawkins.

5. I thought that name sounded familiar! Thanks.

McCaffery won I think. Our local newspaper has abysmal coverage.

Did Marc Friedenberg win in PA-12?
