  • Donald Trump Shatters His Ceiling (Trump On Way To Nomination)

    Slate ^ | 04/26/2016 | Jim Newell
    There wasnt any mystery about how Tuesday nights five Republican presidential primaries would end up: in Donald Trumps win column. The only thing to watch were his margins: Could he close out against John Kasich in certain highly educated, suburban congressional districts in Connecticut and Maryland, and could he break a 50 percent statewide winner-take-all threshold in Connecticut? Yes, he could! He could do all of that, and he did. He won every state by double digits and cruised in every congressional district awarding bound delegates. He made a joke of his competition and the #NeverTrump cause, just as he...

    The Morning Call ^ | 4/26/20116 | Laura Olson
    Republican U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey says he cast his presidential vote for Ted Cruz, describing the Texas senator as having a deep understanding of the issues and "concrete" ideas on the economy and national security. "He's a solid conservative," Toomey said this morning outside his polling place in Zionsville. "We don't agree on everything, but having served with him in the Senate, I know Ted pretty well and I think he's got a real, real viable shot of beating Hillary Clinton in the fall." While Donald Trump leads among Republicans in public polls of state voters, Toomey noted that the...
  • 2016 Republican Delegate Allocation: PENNSYLVANIA (Vy Interesting)

    04/25/2016 9:06:21 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 6 replies
    Delegate allocation (congressional district delegates) While the Pennsylvania process has a winner-take-all element to it, the plan also contains a wholly unique method of selecting -- not allocating -- congressional district delegates. Unlike other loophole primary states, Pennsylvania delegate candidates have no official affiliation with a particular presidential candidate or their campaign. That is official in that there is no pledge process associated with filing to run as a delegate candidate. As the delegate candidates are running as uncommitted -- unofficially pledged to a candidate or not -- they are treated as unbound by the RNC as a result. The...

    hings arent nearly so competitive on the Republican side, with Donald Trump getting a majority of voters in each state. Hes strongest in Rhode Island where he gets 61% to 23% for John Kasich, and 13% for Ted Cruz. The numbers are very similar in Connecticut with Trump getting 59% to 25% for Kasich, and 13% for Cruz. Things are a little bit different in Pennsylvania where Trumps share of the vote isnt as high (51%) and Cruz edges out Kasich 25/22 for second place. None of these states are particularly amenable to the Never Trump movement. Trump has the...

    Pennsylvania is rarely a factor in the GOP presidential primary race considering it's late date in the primary season. However, due to the close nature of this year's delegate count the commonwealth is poised to play a critical roll in deciding who will carry the Republican standard into the election.

    Donald Trump could easily win Pennsylvanias popular vote in a couple of weeks but end up with less than a majority of its delegates under the states quirky rules. A Monmouth University poll released Thursday shows Trump with a large lead in the delegate-rich Keystone State, with 44 percent of the vote to 28 for Ted Cruz and 23 for John Kasich. Trump leads in all regions of the state ahead of the April 26 primary. But while he may get the most votes, he might not get most of the 71 delegates. Only 17 of the states 71...

    Ted Cruz has the lead in Wisconsin as its primary nears, up 43 percent to 37 percent over Donald Trump in an electorate that plays to Cruz's strengths, where Republicans are apt to call themselves "very" conservative and Cruz seems poised to take advantage. He dominates among the voters looking for the most "consistent conservative" as their next nominee over other attributes, taking eight in ten of them. The endorsement of Republican Gov. Scott Walker has been a bit of a boost as well, with Republicans more likely to say it helped Cruz more than hurt. In Trump's home state...

    Republican U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey is returning to Pennsylvania's airwaves for the first time since last summer, advancing a pro-law enforcement and pro-gun control message as Democrats step up attacks on him. The ads, starting Tuesday, tout Toomey's support for undoing Obama administration restrictions on police access to U.S. military gear and Toomey's push to expand background checks on firearms purchases. Toomey's re-election bid is expected to be expensive and hotly contested, and the seat in closely divided Pennsylvania is viewed as crucial to control of the Senate.

    Police: "It appears as though this will be a case self defense and the shootings will be justified."

According to Reading police, sometime during the robbery both employees pulled out their own guns and fired several shots at the masked males, striking two...

    The Ariel Police detained five people - including three minors - overnight Saturday/Sunday, on suspicions of entering Joseph's Tomb outside Shechem (Nablus). Their attorney, Itamar Ben-Gvir, reported that some detainees were bleeding after Palestinian Authority (PA) police found them and beat them; two of them are suffering from head injuries. On Saturday night, the detainees arrived at the Tomb together with about 30 people to protest the site's arson by Palestinian Arabs last week. The PA police beat as many people as possible upon their entry to the site, however, banging their heads against their jeeps until the IDF arrived;...

    Philadelphians and visitors to the city woke up on Friday morning to a world of barricades and tight security measures as authorities prepare for Pope Francis' weekend arrival. Fencing blocked off areas starting just east of City Hall, requiring people in that area to walk north to Cherry Street, where security checkpoints were set up, if they need to get inside the perimeter. Maureen Shaeffer and Ruth Schanbacher, who both came from the suburbs to go to work, didn't know each other before Friday morning. But they bonded over the tricky security measures. "We've been brought together through adversity," Shaeffer...

    Expectant parents wanting the best for their babies typically focus on the best strollers, cribs and cost-effective diapers. But they might want to consider where best to have their baby. That place may not be Pennsylvania, with its low number of pediatricians, obstetrician-gynecologists and parental-support groups, and the lack of a baby-friendly environment. Pennsylvania actually ranked next to last, ahead of only Mississippi, based on health care costs and available services and resources for babies and parents, according to WalletHub.coms 2015 rankings of the best and worst states in which to have a baby.

    The Palestinian Authority responded unenthusiastically Thursday to offers by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to come to Ramallah and renew peace talks unconditionally with the Palestinian Authority (PA). According to Kol Yisrael radio, Palestinian prime minister Rami Hamdallah said that the Palestinians are interested in a new framework for talks. He explained that the talks would not be renewed if a date is not set for ending them, and if the problem of borders is not discussed. Another senior PA official, top Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat, said that the idea of returning to the unconditional negotiations is a trap. He said...

It was loud and it sounded like it was real close, said Kyle Roane, a neighbor of the victim who heard the gunshots.

    Former professional wrestling star Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka was charged Tuesday with third-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter in the death of his mistress more than three decades ago. Prosecutors in Lehigh County announced the results of a grand jury investigation into the death of Nancy Argentino, 23, of New York. Snuka, who had been at a World Wrestling Federation taping at the Allentown Fairgrounds, told police shortly after Argentino's death that he had returned to the couple's Whitehall Township hotel room to find her unresponsive in bed. She was pronounced dead at a hospital several hours later. An autopsy determined she...
