Re: “Plenty for progressives -- especially Peduto -- to like in 2012 primary

Unfortunately, progressives in the nearby suburbs didn't fare nearly so well. Look at the PA 56th, where Allegheny County blue dog Marc Gergely forrayed over the border to push an unknown new blue dog on the Westmoreland County Democrats. Despite Gergely's candidate having no political experience and the fact that he spends most of his time guiding tours in Florida, he managed to beat Westmoreland County's endorsed Democratic candidate Marybeth Kuznik. A progressive, Kuznik had not only the endorsement of her county party but also the PA AFL-CIO and many other organizations and individuals. She worked hard and ran a great campaign. But with the Westmoreland County Democratic Party in total disarray these days, Kuznik did not receive the necessary support from the party that endorsed her. That left the door wide open for Gergely and his blue dog minions to move in. It's time for Gergely and others like him who have gone unchallenged for years to be primaried in 2014!
