In this week’s edition of Ballot Talks: we discuss yesterday’s indictment of Pennsylvania congressman Chaka Fattah on conspiracy charges with JEREMY ROEBUCK, who covers federal courts for The Philadelphia Inquirer. Then, we take a look at the upcoming race for Senate in Pennsylvania. Incumbent Republican Senator Pat Toomey will face a Democratic challenger in 2016. Former Congressman Joe Sestak has declared his candidacy for the Democratic nod, and Katie McGinty, former Chief of Staff for Governor Wolfe, is expected to run as well. We’ll hear from THOMAS BALDINO, professor of political science at Wilkes University, and from MARK NEVINS, a political consultant with The Dover Group. We’ll also speak with Congressman BOB BRADY, to hear his thoughts on the upcoming campaign.
