Friday's DN: state Sen. Mike Stack one heartbeat away from gov?

In today's Clout column, state Sen. Mike Stack of Northeast Philly has a slight lead in two polls this week about the Democratic primary election for lieutenant governor.  Stack is neck-and-neck with former U.S. Rep. Mark Critz of Johnstown while three other candidates register in the single digits.

Also in Clout, former U.S. Rep. Marjorie Margolies and state Rep. Brendan Boyle swap nasty robocalls in the Democratic primary for the 13th District U.S. House seat.

City Council President Darrell Clarke's plan for public school funding is quickly picked apart by Mayor Nutter and other critics.
