  • Chris Carney will be getting together with friends and supporters tomorrow night for a dinner in his honor, along with staff from Dan Onorato’s campaign, as well as Joe Sestak’s folks.

Fitzpatrick lost his seat by only 1,500 votes in 2006 to Murphy, and current polls suggest Fitzpatrick enjoys a 14-point lead.

  • Down in the polls to the point that Nate Silver has already called the race a 95 percent certainty for Pat Toomey, Joe Sestak is pushing on, releasing new ads that his campaign is hoping will serve as an X factor heading into the final three weeks before voting.

  • Bryan Lentz is coming under fire for condemning a practice known as “ghost voting” in the Pennsylvania legislature, and then potentially engaging in the practice himself. The Lentz-Meehan contest in the 7th district looks likes it’s getting ugly.

Biden Lies Again and Again

Joe Biden is a career liar and he lied some more in the debate, for instance when he dismissed the now well-supported New York Post story about Hunter Biden's business dealing as "a Russian plant."
