WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Three weeks and counting until the Nov. 7 election, Franklin County Democrats were sounding ebullient Wednesday night about their chances of unseating Republican incumbents. Andrew Alosi, the nominee for the 89th District seat in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, told the approximately 50 people at the party's fall dinner at the Waynesboro Elks Lodge that many voters have learned to pronounce his name as he campaigned door-to-door. "I'm going to teach Rob Kauffman to sing 'Alosi' whenever he's singing the blues on election night," the candidate said, referring to the GOP incumbent.

"A lot of folks are telling us it will probably come down to Pennsylvania. " Democratic Gov. Ed Rendell predicted "a single-digit election" in Pennsylvania when he visited the campus two days later.
