Who would have guessed: A Pennsylvania primary season

Well... it looks like the PA primary is now topic number one. What does that mean for local races if there is indeed a much larger turnout than may have happened if the presidential race has been decided?

But given all the talk there has been so far on the iss of timing and the PA primary, its surprising there is much more worth reading on the topic. But the WSJ's Numbers Guy column does a good job at going beyond the headlines on the history and issues. See: Pennsylvania’s Missed Opportunity.

But just as there was a micro (and temporary one can hope) diaspora of political foot soldiers from PA into Ohio last week, expect reverse over the coming month. When you meet one of the army of Clinton or Barack supporters that you inevitably will, ask where they are from.
