'Live From the Newsroom' analyzes the Delco vote

Tom Corbett vs. Tom Wolf.

Tom McGarrigle vs. John Kane.

Buckle your seat belts, folks. The primary is over. Now it's time for the main event.

Even though a tiny sliver of those eligible made their way to the polls yesterday, the die is now cast. We know who will be at the top of the ticket come November.

Tom Corbett is generally regarded as one of the most vulnerable governors in the nation. I am guessing they are not happy this morning. I think they would have much rather run against Rep. Allyson Schwartz, who they could easily portray as a Philadelphia liberal, as opposed to York businessman Wolf, who comes across as very much the common man as he tools around in that old jeep.

Here in Delaware County, we will host one of the most hotly contested state Senate races in the Commonwealth, as McGarrigle, the popular chairman of County Council, goes up against labor leader Kane, from Ridley, in a bid for the 26th District seat being vacated by the retiring Sen. Ted Erickson.

Tonight we'll analyze the primary vote in Delco, and also set the table for what should be a grueling fall campaign. Joining me will be the two party heads here in Delaware County, Republican chair Andy Reilly and Dem leader David Landau. Do you have a question you'd like to see asked?

Email it to me at editor@delcotimes.com. Then tune in to DelcoTimes.com tonight at 7 and take part in our live chat. We'll be talking elections tonight at 7. Why not join the conversation!
