The morning after Pennsylvania’s primary elections, Radio Times took stock of the results. Most eyes were watching the down-to-the-wire campaign for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate which found Congressman Joe Sestak defeating incumbent Sen. Arlen Specter. The two parties’ nominees for November’s gubernatorial race were also decided, as well, with Attorney General Tom Corbett and Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato winning the GOP and Democratic bids, respectively. Joining Marty on today’s Radio Times are political scientists STEPHEN K. MEDVIC of Franklin & Marshall and MICHAEL G. HAGEN of Temple University.
