Along with the contest for president there are some other important primary races going on in Pennsylvania. Several Congressional Districts have primary contests, notably the 18th for Tim Murphys's seat and the 3rd, Phil English's. The 5th, in north central PA's 15 counties, also is contested though this is a heavily Republican area. John Peterson, the incumbent, is retiring. There are twelve candidates, total, running there.
The other big race is the primary for state Treasurer. This election finds a successor to Sen. Bob Casey Jr. Four Democrats are running and there were challenges launched against two of them contesting the validity of their petitions. Rob McCord challenged Jennifer Mann and Dennis Morrison-Wesley attempting to get them off the ballot. Those challenges were heard and dismissed this week.
The other candidate, John Cordisco of Bucks County, has people out at Hillary events distributing literature. I ran into someone I knew at the Scranton event for Hillary. Of course, I know a few people on the Cordisco campaign because he is Chair of the Bucks County Democrats, a place I've spent some time.
Please pay attention to this race because it's an important statewide row office.
