The state's leading Democrats, Gov. Tom Wolf and Sen. Bob Casey, this week spent much of their Twitter capital decrying the Congressional GOP push to move a tax reform plan over the finish line, as well as the ongoing limbo of the Children's Health Insurance Program, which awaits congressional reauthorization.

  Meanwhile Casey's counterpart in the Senate, Republican Pat Toomey, defended the Senate tax plan and offered strident remarks on the Senate Floor Thursday.

  Rep. Madeleine Dean (D-Montgomery) threw her hat into the ring this week for the Democratic lieutenant governor race in 2018. She will take on embattled incumbent Mike Stack, as well as a number of other challengers, including Braddock Mayor and erstwhile US Senate candidate John Fetterman.
