(CNN) - Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett's stance on same-sex marriage is no secret, after bringing a legal challenge against a county clerk who tried to sign marriage licenses for same-sex couples. Friday, Corbett went a step further, comparing gay marriage to a union between siblings.
In an interview with CNN affiliate WHP-TV, Corbett was answering a question about comments made by a member of his legal team who had compared same-sex marriage to the marriage of 12 year-olds, with both unions being illegal.
Corbett, a Republican, said that "It was an inappropriate analogy. I think a much better analogy would have been brother and sister, don't you?"
Washington (CNN) - Vice President Joe Biden's teaming up Friday with President Barack Obama at a campaign style event in Scranton, Pennsylvania isn't going unnoticed by the Republican National Committee.

(CNN) – Former U.S. Rep. Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky has emerged as a possible candidate for Pennsylvania's 13th Congressional District, a seat currently held by Rep. Allyson Schwartz, who is running for governor in the Keystone State.

(CNN) - Sen. Bob Casey, a socially conservative Democrat and Pennsylvania's senior senator, announced his support for same-sex marriage Monday saying he had been influenced in part by "letters written to me by LGBT Pennsylvanians and their families."

(CNN) – Freshman Democratic Sen. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania was re-elected Tuesday, according to a CNN projection. The win preserves a seat for Democrats in the narrowly divided chamber that Republicans had hopes late in the race of winning.
GOP candidate Tom Smith, a wealthy business executive, lagged far behind Casey for much of the race. But in the last few weeks he spent heavily on advertising and was able to narrow the polls but never take the lead.
