5. Great news! Rethugs control both state houses and the gov. seat. We need A.G. Kane to fight!

In Pennsylvania, the Rethugs want to undercut the Dems by every underhanded means which may be possible. The federal congressional districts seats are already gerrymandered in favor of the Rethugs, and now they want to have PA's electoral votes allocated by congressional district rather than by the long-standing "winner-take-all" method. If allocation by congressional districts had been in place in 2012, President Obama would have won only 7 of the state's 20 electoral votes.

Also, Corbett wants to privatize the state liquor stores in order to dissolve the state liquor store employee's union block, which is comprised largely of Democrats.

I am elated that Attorney General Kathleen Kane (newly elected in 2012) is taking on Corbett and his cohorts.
