After falling short of the Republican nomination in the 2022 Lehigh Valley congressional race, Kevin Dellicker says he's giving it another shot next year.

Following Gov. Josh Shapiro's announcement he was striking private school vouchers from his own budget, budget negotiations have hit a brick wall and Republican St. Sen. Jarrett Coleman says it may remain that way.

It's something that really impacts the future of negotiations," Coleman says. He says going back on a handshake deal will make future negotiations even more difficult than they already were.
