LARGE CROWD of supporters turned out in City Hall’s Conversation Hall to show overwhelming support by Phila.’s political, labor, veterans’ and religious leaders for Dan McCaffery’s bid for Attorney General in spring primary.

…While Schwartz Backs Murphy For AG Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz (D-Phila.) yesterday endorsed Iraq War veteran and former prosecutor Patrick Murphy for Pennsylvania Attorney General. Schwartz, a prominent national voice on health-care policy and women’s rights, and the highest-ranking woman elected official in Pennsylvania, praised Murphy for his tireless work on these issues. “Patrick Murphy is a proven leader. He has fought to ensure women get equal pay at work. He has been a champion for children who need access to a doctor. He has cracked down on shady finan-

He has the experience and tenacity necessary to protect Pennsylvania families,” Schwartz added. “I’ve worked with Patrick, and together we’ve

It’s been an honor to stand with her during these battles, and I’m equally honored to earn her endorsement for Attorney General.”


Santorum Doesn’t Hear Negatives Everyone is saying former US Sen. Rick Santorum’s bid for the Republican Presidential election flashed like a firecracker in Iowa and will fizzle everywhere else. Don’t sell Santorum short. His schedule today includes over one dozen stops and short meetings in between on his way to tonight’s debate. Just what he did in Iowa. He may not win next primary, but he will finish in top three without Super PAC money.
