MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' on the results of the Pennsylvania Senate primaries

It's time to follow up on yesterday's primary elections in Pennsylvania beginning with MSNBC's "Morning Joe" reporting Pennsylvania GOP Senate Primary Still Too Close To Call.

Pennsylvania's chaotic Republican Senate primary is still too close to call,, with doctor Mehmet Oz locked in a tight race with former hedge fund executive Dave McCormick. Steve Kornacki breaks down the GOP Senate primary, the Democratic Senate primary and the GOP primary for governor.
Kornacki concentrated on the Republican contest because it's too close to call. There are still a lot of mail-in and even in-person votes still count and the election looks to be headed to a recount. Joe Scarborough ranted about the reason for that in Joe: Pennsylvania Should Count Early Votes Early, Like Florida Does.

Pennsylvania's Republican Senate primary was too close to call early Wednesday, with Mehmet Oz locked in a tight race with Dave McCormick. The state secretary of state’s office indicated in a statement that it could take days to report unofficial results due to mail-in and absentee ballots. Joe Scarborough discusses why mail-in and absentee ballots should be counted early to avoid delays.
I grew up in California, where the absentee ballots were counted first, at least before 1989 when I moved out of the state, so I agree with Scarborough that other states should do it, too.

On the other hand, the contests for Governor and the Democratic Senate primary did yield clear winners. The final segment on the primary focused on the latter, 'He's Feeling Great': Pa. Second Lady Accepts John Fetterman's Nomination.

Second Lady of Pennsylvania, Giselle Barreto Fetterman, joins Morning Joe to discuss her husband, the current lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania John Fetterman, winning the Democratic nomination for an open U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania immediately following his having a stroke.
Congratulations to Fetterman and I wish him a speedy and complete recovery.

That's it for the Pennsylvania primary. Stay tuned to see if I cover the rest of the "list of future blogging topics" from Weekend Update compares this week's headlines to 'Mad Max' on last night's 'SNL'.
