Good morning everyone! Here is today's Daily Briefing.
The Express-Times runs profiles on two State House races: Joe Brennan (D-Inc) vs. Dave Molony (R) in the 133rd Legislative Dstirict, and Charles Dertinger vs. Joe Emrick in the 137th Legislative District. In Northampton County, supporters of keeping the Gracedale nursing home in county hands are seeking to hold a referendum on the subject - but they'll need to get 20,000 signatures in 90 days to get the issue ballot access. Our friends at Discover Lehigh Valley have revamped their website to help increase tourism in the Valley.
Two new polls shows a major tightening of the Pennsylvania Senate race: a Public Policy Polling poll shows the race at 46-45% in favor of Joe Sestak, while a Morning Call/Muhlenberg College poll shows Sestak with a 44-41% lead.
We have two Chamber events today: a debate between Doug Reichely (R-Inc) and Patrick Slattery (D) in the race for the 134th Legislative District and a haunted mixer at the Hellertown Grist Mill.
