FOX43 Capitol Beat – Previewing Pennsylvania Midterm Primaries

Voter turnout is expected to be larger than normal for Tuesday's midterm primary election in Pennsylvania. There are three statewide elections -- Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and U.S. Senate -- plus every new Congressional district and a number of local state House and state Senate seats will be up for grabs.
