What to look for on Smart Talk Tuesday, November 1, 2016:

With just a week before Election Day, Smart Talk continues conversations with the candidates - giving voters the opportunity to learn more about the candidates on the ballots they'll see next Tuesday.  Tuesday, we'll talk with two candidates running for the U.S. House of Representatives. 

Mary Ellen Balchunis is a Democrat looking to represent the 7th Congressional District.  The 7th district includes parts of Lancaster and Berks Counties along with Chester, Delaware and Montgomery Counties.  She is running against incumbent Republican Congressman Patrick Meehan.
