State Sen. Vince Fumo has the first television commercial running in the race for the First Senatorial District but he apparently hasn't updated his campaign web site since he was re-elected four years ago.

Fumo's list of endorsements includes John Dougherty, head of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 98.
