Third party is becoming more viable thanks to the massive overreach of the usual establishment suspects, both sides must be starting to shake a little at the upcoming elections. This one won't be in the news, even in PA :)

From GOA:

Both Republicans and Democrats alike were “stunned” when a write-in candidate trounced the establishment picks for their respective parties in a Pennsylvania senate race last week.

Out of more than 22,000 votes cast, Tea Party Republican Scott Wagner garnered 10,654 write-in ballots (or 48 percent), reducing the mainstream Republican and Democrat candidates to just 27 percent and 26 percent of the vote. This marks the first time in Pennsylvania history that a write-in candidate has won a state senate seat.

It gets better, I just realized that Scott Wagner is from York county, the very place that one of the super progressive Democratic governor candidates (Tom Wolf) is from :)

Wolf has been writing articles on DKos about how PA is ready for the "progressive agenda" and all kinds of BS like that, while more publicly establishing himself in TV ads as a business owner, family man, etc. He is the "Orren Boyle" of my state. Hopefully the nomination of a write-in "tea bagger" for state senate in this POS' area foreshadows what will happen in the upcoming elections in the state.
