  • Meet the candidates

Today's primary election has few races for either major political party in Crawford County, but the heads of the county's Democrat and Republican parties hope voters will still turn out.

Democrats have choices for the U.S. House as well.

A clutch of both Democrats and Republicans are challenging one another in the lieutenant governor primary.

Donahue said he also hasn't seen much of any of the candidates in the Crawford County area this primary season.

Ron DiNicola of Erie County, Dr. Robert Multari of Hermitage and Chris Rieger of Butler County are running for the Democratic nomination. Bob Casey Jr.is unopposed in his bid for his party's nomination.

Pennsylvania voters have a lot to think about when they hit the polls for Tuesday's primary, including a hotly contested Republican primary for governor.

Eighty-four candidates are running in 18 House districts in light of new court-ordered redrawn congressional district maps in February. Ashford, 69, has the endorsement of the Democratic establishment, including the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and is portraying himself as the one who can win in a swing-voting district in November. Ted Cruz of Texas still competing on the Republican ballot; former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Sen.

It was a rough night for Republican members of Congress a week ago. The victor will face incumbent Democratic Gov. Thomas Wolf in November, who is unopposed for his party's nomination.

Other Republicans hoping to challenge ballot Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf in the November election are Paul Mango, a former health care systems consultant; and Laura Ellsworth, a commercial litigation attorney and former chairwoman of the Greater Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce.

Shooting reported at California high school, sheriff says
Highland High student Katharina Smith, 16, said she was driving to the school when she saw "a ton of police racing toward school". Summary: A 14-year-old in Palmdale, California was arrested for shooting another classmate on Friday.

For Democrats, incumbent Lt. Gov. Michael Stack will face four challengers: Nina Ahmad, Kathleen Cozzone, John Fetterman, and Raymond Sosa.

Today, with Wolf unopposed for governor, only the 112th House race is even contested, though it's a hot contest and should again attract a higher percentage of Democrats than the county as a whole. Michele Brooks, R-Jamestown, has a potential Democratic opponent in Sue Mulvey, of Sharon.

Barletta is heavily favored over state Rep. Jim Christiana to become the Republican challenger for Democratic Sen.

The most competitive and crowded races are for the open seats for governor and the 1st Congressional District, but Idaho's lieutenant governor and state treasurer seats are also up for grabs without an incumbent.

U.S. Rep. Bob Brady, who now represents the old 1st District that includes portions of the new 5th District, will not seek re-election.

The 65th District state House seat, covering eastern Crawford County, Warren County and part of Forest County, has Kathy Rapp of Warren County seeking nomination to an eighth term.

Those who need a ride to the polls can call the county Democratic headquarters, at 570-622-3155 or Republican headquarters at 570-622-1540.

Anyone can select a nonpartisan or Democrat ballot, but only people who are registered as Republicans can select the GOP ballot.

Of the city's more than 1 million registered voters, more than 796,000 are registered Democrats, while GOP registration remains at almost 117,000; those with neither Democrat or Republican registration number at almost 118,000.
