Demand Builds for Open Primaries in Pennsylvania

PENNSYLVANIA OPEN PRIMARIES
CALLS MOUNT FOR OPEN PRIMARIES IN PENNSYLVANIA (by Damon Eris, CAIVN) Independent Pennsylvanians have their work cut out for them.

NEW YORK

  • NY-26: Congratulations And Commiserations (BY CELESTE KATZ, Daily News/Daily Politics) Democrat Kathy Hochul bested GOP candidate Jane Corwin 48% to 42%, with nearly 85% of the precincts reporting. Independent candidate Jack Davis, running on a Tea Party line, pulled 8%.
  • Shocking Dem win in NY House special election came down to just 1 word: Medicare (BETH FOUHY  Associated Press, The Republic) The rural-suburban district between Buffalo and Rochester is one of New York's most conservative and has been held by a Republican — including national names like Jack Kemp — for years. But Corwin saw her early lead dissolve after coming out in favor of a Republican budget plan that would cut billions from Medicare.
