Week 1: Undecided voters weigh in on Senate, gubernatorial candidates

Written by Tim Lambert, witf Multimedia News Director | Oct 7, 2010 8:59 AM

 

Undecided voters may play a big role in determining who the state's next governor or U.S. Senator will be. Recent polls show a higher number of undecideds at this point in the election season than is traditionally the case. Analysts say name recognition has been a problem for Dan Onorato (D) and Tom Corbett (R) in the gubernatorial campaign as well as Pat Toomey (R) and Joe Sestak (D) in the Senate race. As part of WITF's Election 2010 coverage, Real Life | Real Issues series is focusing on a group of undecided voters heading into the November 2 election to find out what they think of the candidates and what issues are important to them. Morning Edition host Tim Lambert and Capitol Bureau Chief will talk with them each week throughout the month.
