We were wondering what comes after G20?

With the governor's race now entrained, and next year's senate race percolating...  the state of politics in Pennsylvania is going to be at the center of some key elections for those offices and even for some of the higher profile congressional seats that will be in the news..

(update btw....   Allentown Morning Call's John Micek looks at Dan O's campaign kickoff from a slightly different angle than most.. )

Thus Capital Hill's newspaper The Hill, has a piece out on the view from 20K feet looking down on us. There will be more to follow. It may not reach the same crescendo as last year's primary when the national and international folks were parachuting in as they would again for the G20; it will be more of a mild boil for a longer period of time.  Think about it....  This is all really for 2010 races and last I checked it was still 2009.

For the statewide races that have both contested pimaries and generals Pennsylvania must feel like purgatory.  They just are not similar races.  How different is the spring from the fall?  Here are the current voter registration stats by county shown separately for Democratic and Republican party registrations.   Do I need to label which is which?

I see a '9' and a '7'. Am I color blind?

Thanks for "The Hill" link. I wonder if this name recognition helps or hurts our Onorato in Erie ...

"And Republicans will give Dahlkemper a run for her money; former Erie County Solicitor John Onorato (R) is the front-runner in a Republican primary there, and even Democratic strategists say Dahlkemper will face her steepest climb to reelection this year."
