  • Mob Attacks on Temple Students Stoke Racial Tensions

    New York Post ^ | Octob | Joshua Rhett Miller
    The father of a Temple University sophomore who was beaten by a roving teen mob last week said people “should draw their own conclusions” about whether the string of attacks against students and cops was racially motivated. Joe Lauletta, 50, wrote on Facebook a day after the flash mob-style attacks that a group of 30 to 40 “black teenagers” assaulted his daughter, Christina, 19, and her two male friends on their way home from a Temple football game at Lincoln Financial Field on Friday. Lauletta said the post, which has been shared more than 5,100 times, contains comments alleging a...
  • Pennsylvania GOP: State poll watcher law is unconstitutional

    Associated Press ^ | Oct 24, 2016 4:25 PM EDT | Errin Haines Whack
    With two weeks to go before the presidential election, the Pennsylvania Republican Party has filed a lawsuit in federal court claiming the state’s law regarding poll watchers is unconstitutional. The challenge comes as polls show a tight race between Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. In recent days on the campaign trail, Trump has warned of “rigged elections” in “other communities” including cities like Philadelphia. The current state law, established in 1937, allows poll watchers to monitor locations only within the county in which they are registered to vote. The lawsuit claims that because some electoral districts...
  • Brian O'Neill: Pa. voters, beware — slippery ballot question ahead (TRICK QUESTION ON PA POLL)

    10/24/2016 3:13:29 PM PDT · by Red in Blue PA · 4 replies
    Pennsylvania has a ballot question almost certain to pass this November because most voters won’t know what it means. One of the things it may mean is that baby boomers can’t admit we’re getting old. The ballot question goes like this: “Shall the Pennsylvania Constitution be amended to require that justices of the Supreme Court, judges and magisterial district judges be retired on the last day of the calendar year in which they attain the age of 75 years?” Sounds pretty reasonable, right? Jurists, who enjoy about as secure an elected position as exists, shouldn’t serve forever. What you may...

    HARRISBURG (KDKA) – Nearly 100,000 Pennsylvania Democrats have switched to Republican since the beginning of the year. What’s more: The Pennsylvania Republican party says more than 240-thousand new voters have joined the party since last November. The party says that the surge in Republican registrations is nearly twice the number of newly registered Republicans compared to both the 2008 and 2012 numbers combined. The party says the new numbers come from the Pennsylvania Department of State which shows that 97,607 Democrats have actually switched to Republican.

    PHILADELPHIA -- Hillary Clinton’s campaign is aggressively outworking Donald Trump in battleground Pennsylvania, a state the billionaire businessman can scarcely afford to lose and still hope to become president. Despite polling well in Pennsylvania throughout the summer, Clinton’s team is nevertheless bearing down in a state her party has carried in six straight elections. They are ratcheting up advertising and dispatching their top supporters to Pennsylvania, from Bill Clinton to Joe Biden to last week’s visit from President Barack Obama. “We’ve got to fight for this thing,” Obama thundered at a rally in Philadelphia last Tuesday. “I need you to...

    The shift in Virgina seems rather stunning. Only a few days ago, most pundits, including conservative ones, had written the state off. With the last two polls showing a virtual tie, that analysis is out the window. Pennsylvania is also closing, but still sits at a 6.0 point margin for Hillary, so for now, it will remain out of the index. This shift is significant because Trump can pull into the lead just by bringing Republicans into his tent. He has not been achieving the ninety percent level of Republican support that a GOP candidate typically receives. He has been...

    Former Gov. Ed Rendell on Tuesday declared Pennsylvania "in play" for president, two days before his friend Hillary Clinton is slated to accept the Democratic nomination in Philadelphia. The reason? Republican nominee Donald Trump's rhetoric is resonating with "white, blue-collar workers," Rendell said at breakfast sponsored by Politico. "People have to understand, not withstanding presidential elections, Pennsylvania is not a blue state," Rendell said. "We have a Republican legislature." Rendell noted that Pennsylvania has more than 900,000 more registered Democrats than Republicans, but his party's voters "don't turn out nearly as well" unless the presidency is on the ballot.

Another top strategist on the campaign, Thomas Lindenfeld, already has testified that he took out a $1 million loan from then-Sallie Mae CEO Al Lord at Fattah's encouragement.

    When most people think of battleground America, they think of Florida and Ohio, two of only three states (along with Nevada) that have voted for the winner of every presidential election since 1996. They tend not to think of Pennsylvania as a classic “swing state” — it has voted for the Democrat in every election since 1992, and it didn’t even crack the top 10 in 2012 campaign ad spending. But in 2016, Pennsylvania could be the keystone of the Electoral College and the ultimate arbiter of whether Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

    There wasn’t any mystery about how Tuesday night’s five Republican presidential primaries would end up: in Donald Trump’s 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...

    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)

    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...

  • Clinton, Sanders close in CT/PA/RI; Trump Headed for Big Wins (59% CT, 51% PA, 61% RI)

    hings aren’t nearly so competitive on the Republican side, with Donald Trump getting a majority of voters in each state. He’s 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 Trump’s share of the vote isn’t 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...

    A retired middle school principal was so moved by Donald Trump that he switched his Democratic Party registration so he can vote for him in Tuesday’s Republican presidential primary. So did the daughter of a steelworker, who twice voted for President Barack Obama but says she is “over” the Democrats’ political correctness. And a husband-wife team of Trump volunteers — she’s a laid-off airport worker, he’s a laid-off truck driver — were Democrats for 30 years, until recently. “We always voted Democrat,” said Laurie McGinnis, as her husband, Ricky, hung a Trump banner outside their South Greensburg home. “But not...
