    Petition Circulation
    Unlike IN, PA has just started its petition circulation period this week. So, even if you don't want to run, you may want to contact you favorite candidate to see if they can use some help.

    Fish Frys!
    From Gloria:

    If you're running for office/scheduling a candidate, you probably know how important it is to make time for the fried fish fests - by the time it's over, you'll be spelling it Fryday.
