do anything to advance his career? he claims he wrote pennsylvania's gun safety law. but the truth is he didn't. there is no law requiring universal background checks for all gun purchases. his campaign even bragged that he passed 54 bills. in fact, 7 years in harrisburg, steve santarsiero has never passed a single bill into law. i'm shaughnessy naughton. i approve this message because i am not a career politician.

their medical marijuana prescriptions filled. that will most likely happen one to two years from now. under the law medical marijuana will be available in pills, oils and topical gel form. patients who have cancer, multiple sclerosis or other debilitating diseases are eligible. it is 6:37. new at 6:00, someone possibly on their way to the jersey shore could be a million dollars richer. imagine that. powerball officials say a winning ticket from wednesday's drawing was sold at the farley services plaza on the atlantic city expressway in hammonton. it matched five numbers but not the powerball. it's only worth a million bucks. >> got a million dollar forecast for you neighborhood by neighborhood. we've broken down the forecast for you to give you a detailed look at your day.

because together, we can make a political revolution and create an economy and democracy that works for all and not just the powerful few. in the last eight years, the fracking industry has spent over $40 million dollars on lobbying in pennsylvania. so it's no surprise that even though they've had over 4,000 violations,
