Strange thing happened in the 28th Pennsylvania State Senate district.

A candidate running as a "write in" in a special election actually upset the main Republican and the Democrat on the ballot.

"Unofficial" vote totals report Scott Wagner, a conservative Republican got 48% of the vote while the main Republican got 27% and the Democrat got 26%.

Hmmm.




A Tea Party candidate became the first ever state senator in Pennsylvania to win as a write-in candidate on Tuesday in a special election that showed how dissatisfied voters are, even at the local level, with both organized political parties.

During the campaign, conservative Republican Scott Wagner was blistered by establishment Republicans that he accused of "orchestrating the special election in such a way to hand the seat, vacated by Mike Waugh in January," to the establishment Republican candidate Ron Miller.

I wish my county would get their heads out of their behinds! All we do in this county is the same mad experiment over and over and over again.

Never the less, it is good to see some of my fellow states folk do something that is unexpected to the established servants! (sorry, had to throw that in there for a chuckle)

Good for the write in


Here's the problem.
I'm a registered Republican..( I know boooooo ) its OK
I live in western PA. I see the same crap over and over from both parties.

So when I go to the polls. I like to make choices that of an Independent.
Problem!!!!! And I complained.
Since I'm registered as a Republican. The poll machine is set up so that only republican candidates are shown. When I ask the guy if I can please see the other choices...I get a snide response like "you should have changed your party affiliation"
I know I'm not liked in my township because I'm 1 of 15 republicans here. Though I think more like an Indy.

So as each time I've been going. I just take my note book of names I like to write in. Just last election though I was told my name book was not permitted at the poll machine.
CRAP! Now how do I properly spell the candidates name.... if not spelled right. It is no good

I swear Pennsylvania is the most corrupt of the Commonwealths. Look out Austin here I come!!!
