Daily Briefing, 9/20/2010

Good morning everyone!  It's another Monday...try to contain your joy.  Anyways, here is today's Daily Briefing.

A poll released yesterday shows Congressman Charlie Dent with an 11% lead on challenger John Callahan

In state-wide news, Gubernatorial candidates Dan Onorato and Tom Corbett discussed their jobs plans for WFMZ.  WFMZ also runs a story on the practice of gerrymandering political districts - a little know process that occurs every ten years that can have massive implications on the political future of Pennsylvania.  A new poll by the Wilkes-Barre Times Leader shows a closer result in the upcoming elections than other polls have shown, with Corbett up a mere 1% on Onorato and Pat Toomey holding a 4% lead on Joe SestakPresident Obama will actually be in Philadelphia today, raising money for Joe Sestak.

Remember the Gulf oil spill?  Good news - according to the government, the well has been closed and the spill is over.  A majority of economists want to see the Bush tax cuts extended for all income brackets, according to a by CNNMoney.com.

That's it for now!  We'll have more later today.  Have a good one!
