Radio Smart Talk: Election preview

Radio Smart Talk for Thursday, Oct. 25:

Pennsylvania may not be a swing state this year, but there’s still an important election twelve days away. The race for U.S. Senate has gotten much closer than expected, with Republican challenger Tom Smith closing the polling gap between him and Democratic incumbent Bob Casey.


The race for Attorney General is gaining traction, too, with both candidates airing commercials and going head-to-head in a debate.

And Harrisburg hosts one of the most competitive state Senate races in the commonwealth.

On Thursday’s Radio Smart Talk, Tim Lambert will talk about the 2012 campaign with witf's Capitol Bureau Chief Mary Wilson, as well as political scientists Christopher Borick and Jim Hoefler.
