It will be interesting to see who wins the primary election to face off for the general election in November.

Corbet is a lock for the Republican nomination, and Onorato seems poised to take up the banner for the Democrats. The real question is whether either man cares one whit for the interests of Pennsylvanians as a whole instead of advancing their own respective partisan agendas or serving the political interests of the special interests funding them... or simply those of thyemselves and their own cronies.

Don't count Sam Rohrer out just yet. For a man who has been fighting to beat a large name in Tom Corbett he's gaining ground. He deserves a place at the table.

Sam Rohrer stated at the start of his campaign he would not accept donations from Unions or Gaming .

Corbett has, and from Lou DeNaples that eventually got his Casino back on the condition he turn it over to his daughter.

All this time DeNaples was under investigation by the Top Cop Corbett and the FBI for connections to the Bufalino Crime Family ? I sent an E-mail to Corbett's office and asked him why he didn't return DeNaples donation of 50 some thousand dollars. It's business as usual in the state of Pa.

Don't answer any tough questions that may put you in a light that you will need a bagman to carry all the favors you will owe to fund your campaign.

Maybe you can put this governors race in better words than I use which could offend some people. Bagman and being in compliance with the Mob are a little harsh but thats the way I see it.
