It's like the Mary-Beth Gazette today, with two front page stories and an editorial touching on the combative congressional candidate and ex-US Attorney.
Dennis Roddy writes on the Democratic fundraiser with Buchanan targets Tommy Chong and Cyril Wecht:
Mr. Chong said he returned to Pittsburgh, "to thank her for jump-starting my career again."
His thanks included calling Ms. Buchanan "a liar and a thief."
Dr. Wecht, whose one-liners tend to run longer than some prison sentences, had his own choice offerings, including "that vicious, horrible woman."
Last night, Mike Walsh, Ms. Buchanan's campaign manager, issued a statement dismissing the criticism and tying Mr. Chong to her electoral opponent, U.S. Rep. Jason Altmire, D-McCandless.
"If all the drug users and convicted felons line up behind Jason Altmire while the law-abiding citizens of the 4th District stand with Mary Beth Buchanan, that will be all right with her," Mr. Walsh said.
There's video on the Early Returns homepage.
Dan Malloy and Paula Ward say Buchanan's successor could be named in the next week -- a month after the state's two other USAs have already been nominated. (Philly's was confirmed Wednesday.)
