Episode 49: TV ad-pocalypse

Written by Katie Meyer | Apr 15, 2018 11:12 AM

On this week's podcast, we catch up on a slew of nasty ads that have been circulating on TV--a sign the GOP gubernatorial primary is heating up.

Paul Mango and Scott Wagner are taking turns calling each other liberal and (in Mango's case) "violent," a slumlord," and a "deadbeat dad." Paula Knudsen and Brad Bumsted of The Caucus and John Micek of PennLive join us to discuss why those unusually personal attacks are happening, and what they may do for the two candidates' prospects.

Plus, we recap the latest on sexual harassment in the legislature, as well as a potentially ill-fated push to overhaul Pennsylvania's justice system.
