    PA State Senate debate. The fight to replace one of the Pennsylvania’s most powerful lawmakers takes center stage today. Guest host Dave Davies moderates a debate between the three democratic candidates vying to replace Philadelphia state senator Vince Fumo. Fumo who has served 30 years in the legislature announced earlier this year that he is not seeking re-election while he is under Federal Indictment. The candidates are community activist ANNE DICKER, Center City lawyer LARRY FARNESE, and electrician union manager JOHN DOUGHERTY. Voters in the South Philadelphia district will chose one on April 22nd to be the democratic nominee for the general election.
