Well it's cold and blustery outside the window here at Casa de Capitol Notebook. And all the bluster is, frankly, a none-too-subtle reminder that the political season is nearly done and Election Day is nearly upon us. As of this writing, a scant 48 hours remain before the polls open and voters pick from the two Toms and host of legislative and congressional offices. And though you might think the key to voters' hearts lies in offering them free pot brownies (well, maybe in Daylin Leach's district), it's actually all about which side, in a low turnout year, can get their base out to vote. Based on the last couple of gubernatorial cycles, voter turnout is expected to be somewhere in the 40 percent to 49 percent range, Franklin & Marshall College political sage Terry Madonna told us last week.
BLUE BELL — President Obama and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie dropped in on Pennsylvania on Sunday to try to influence the gubernatorial campaign in the race's waning days and motivate voters in what is a relatively sleepy midterm election in the state.
