    Default Democratic state Sen. Blake to resign from Pennsylvania Senate

    (The Center Square) – The Pennsylvania Senate will soon have another open seat as word emerged that Sen. John Blake, D-Archbald, would soon be resigning after 10 years in the chamber.

    Blake told the The Times-Tribune newspaper that he would be stepping down March 8. The newspaper said it had confirmed with other sources that he would be taking a position on the staff of U.S. Rep. Matt Cartwright, D-Pennsylvania.

    “I’ve given my all to [serving in the Senate],” Blake told the newspaper. “My passion and my joy in the job has ebbed over the past couple of years.”

The presiding officer in the house where the vacancy happened must call for an election. There are no deadlines set in the state constitution on when a special election can be held."

    He*s going from State Senator to a staff job in the U.S. House? Something tells me his *passion* is changing to national politics and he*ll be running for some other seat in the future. Toomey*s seat maybe?
