What to look for on Smart Talk Thursday, April 26, 2018:
Pennsylvania’s primary election is scheduled for May 15. A mid-term election is important because voters are deciding on candidates for the U.S House of Representatives and in Pennsylvania — a U.S. Senate seat. Pennsylvanians are also voting for governor as well as state house and half the state senate.
Smart Talk has invited almost three dozen candidates to appear on the program so that voters can hear where they stand on the issues. The candidates invited include those with opponents in the primary for governor, the U.S. House and U.S. Senate.
About two-thirds have accepted our invitation.
On Thursday’s Smart Talk, we’re joined by two Democrats running for seperate Congressional seats.
Judy Herschel is vying for the 12th district nomination. The 12th district includes Perry, Juniata, Mifflin, Snyder, Union Counties and parts of Northumberland and Montour Counties in the WITF listening area.
Laura Quick is competing with one other candidate in the 9th district.
The 9th district is made up of Lebanon, Schuylkill, Columbia and parts of Berks, Carbon, Northumberland, Luzerne, and Montour Counties.
