    SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, PA — This past June, Dr. Mehmet Oz was declared the winner of Pennsylvania’s Republican primary for US Senate by just 951 votes. Even so, he was not in a good position. And things were about to get a whole lot worse. His bitter primary contest against businessman David McCormick had left him battered. His Democratic opponent, Pennsylvania’s Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, had gone on the attack — portraying Oz as an elite carpetbagger from New Jersey. Polls showed Oz had slid into a double-digit deficit in the race. The money had dried up, and establishment Republicans were...

  • Oz at Trump Rally

    Interesting observations on Today's Trump Rally 1- Overwhelming number of comment posteds on live streaming site are anti-OZ 2. When Oz spoke on stage, the people in the Gallery with Oz signs all cheered, but when the camera backed away for a few seconds to show the backs of the audience in from of the stage.. there was almost NO REACTION. Seems like they selected and gave signs to those behind the podium with a specific intent... one not shared very much by the larger audience. It will be interesting to see what happens on primary night on the 27th......

    “Today, an emergency appeal was filed in the U.S. Supreme Court challenging the election results in Pennsylvania. This appeal raises serious legal issues, and I believe the Court should hear the case on an expedited basis. “The Pennsylvania Constitution requires in-person voting, except in narrow and defined circumstances. Late last year, the Pennsylvania Legislature passed a law that purported to allow universal mail-in voting, notwithstanding the Pennsylvania Constitution’s express prohibition. “This appeal argues that Pennsylvania cannot change the rules in the middle of the game. If Pennsylvania wants to change how voting occurs, the state must follow the law to...

    City Commissioners Chairwoman Lisa Marie Deeley, who is facing election in the May primary, quietly lost her notary license last year for failing to check the identification of a woman whose signature she notarized. In doing so, Deeley approved documents that fraudulently deprived a woman of her right to her husband’s death benefits. The husband was an acquaintance of Deeley’s and in the midst of a contentious divorce.

    From the Inside Flap The tide is turning. “In 2016, for the first time in nearly 60 years, a Republican candidate for president, Donald J. Trump, received more than 20% of the black vote in the key swing state of Pennsylvania . . . [and] in the key state of Michigan. In reality, it was black Americans who made the election of President Trump possible.” —Vernon Robinson and Bruce Eberle Once this reversal, underway for decades, is complete, it’s all over for the Democratic Party. In Coming Home, conservative activists Vernon Robinson and Bruce Eberle trace not only black American...

    Slowly and subtly, Delaware County barber shops are doing business again despite the governor’s order forbidding it. In Media, a few blocks from the borough offices, Giovanni’s Barber Shop was back in operation offering full services Wednesday. Owner Nichole Missino has her fingers crossed that her new, relatively low-key approach and detail to safety and sanitation procedures to reduce the potential spread of the coronavirus will work.

    President Donald Trump has been building a commanding fund-raising lead nationally for the 2020 presidential campaign. That trend is mirrored in rural Pennsylvania, where the president received more in campaign contributions than the four leading Democrats combined. Trump’s reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee raised $125 million in the third quarter of the year, a presidential fundraising record, according to the Associated Press The Trump campaign said that it has raised more than $308 million in 2019. “The power of incumbency is a major, major advantage,” said Chris Borick, a political science professor at Muhlenberg College. Trump “is following...

    Fox Business host Stuart Varney predicted that President Trump may have a surprise for Democrats and those calling for "drastic action" on climate change, as the president is set to give a speech in natural gas-rich Pennsylvania on Wednesday. On Sunday, the Washington Post Editorial Board wrote an opinion piece arguing for a "carbon tax," which would be levied upon businesses and individuals based on greenhouses gas emissions. The board wrote, "The science does not change because politicians deny that humans are warming the planet. Likewise, the economics do not change because politicians find them ideologically or politically inconvenient." "It's...

    The bell in the Independence Hall tower rang at 9 a.m., and Mark Sanford took a deep breath. He grabbed a giant check for “one trillion dollars,” stood next to a tiny wooden lectern, and asked me if I was ready for him to kick off a news conference announcing his bid to challenge President Donald Trump in the 2020 Republican primary. It didn’t really feel like a news conference. I was the only reporter there. And when it began, the only others around besides his two aides were a family 30 yards away with a selfie stick and a...

    As Democrats inch closer to the 2020 primary elections without a clear front-runner, two prominent liberal super PACs are pouring money into Pennsylvania in an effort to pull working-class voters away from Donald Trump. In separate efforts that nonetheless have striking similarities, Priorities USA and American Bridge have pledged millions of dollars to persuading swing voters in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Florida and Wisconsin that the incumbent Republican president isn't looking out for their interests. "We want to show what life is like for real Pennsylvanians in Trump's economy," said Jack Doyle, director of outreach for Priorities USA’s Pennsylvania effort. "President Trump...

    It is not an unusual sentiment in this blue-collar corner of Pennsylvania: “I voted Trump last time, and I’ll vote Trump next time because there’s a lot of loonies out there.” What is unusual is that Gary Reese, 75, served as the Democratic mayor of Kingston, a town in Luzerne County at the heart of what used to be the state’s coal belt, in the 1990s. “The Democrats used to be about the working man,” he continued. “Now, they sound like communists.” Luzerne County emerged as one of the bellwethers of Mr Trump’s unlikely 2016 victory, a place where a...

    It will be a day at the beach for President Trump’s re-election campaign on Labor Day. The campaign is taking to the skies on Labor Day to fly banners over beach-goers to show its thanks for workers fueling the economy. “Labor Day is the perfect time to thank American workers for everything they do for our country,” said Tim Murtaugh, Trump campaign communications director. “Under President Trump’s policies, the economy is strong and growing, and more Americans are working than ever before. The American economy is the envy of the world and our American workers are the best on the...

    On Monday night, President Trump held a rally in Montoursville, Pennsylvania to ramp up support in the all-important battleground state. Trump won Pennsylvania in 2016, but according to a newly released Quinnipiac pollOpens a New Window. , Joe Biden leads the President 53 to 42 percent there.

    Pennsylvania was Trump country in 2016. The question in 2019 is, will Pennsylvania deliver the votes for a Trump victory in 2020? In the match-up between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in 2016, Trump won the state by more than 44,000 votes. The contest turned out to be 48.2% to 47.5% in favor of Trump. With the additions of Wisconsin and Michigan, Trump broke through the blue wall previously responsible for Democrat wins in presidential elections in recent years. The combined margin of votes in favor of Trump in all three states totaled 77,000. So, it was tight in these...

    In a spirited campaign rally Monday night, a bullish President Trump called on his fervent supporters in rural Pennsylvania to mobilize for his reelection bid, telling them he could potentially serve a fifth term in the White House with their help. "We ran one time and we're '1-and-0' — but it was for the big one. Now we're going to have a second time. And we're going to have another one. And then we'll drive them crazy," the president told the raucous crowd in the small town of Montoursville in central Pennsylvania. "Maybe if we really like it a lot...

    President Trump seems itching for a fight against Joe Biden. Monday night he tried out some new jabs. Standing in front of thousands of supporters at a rally in north central Pennsylvania, Trump leveled multiple attacks on Biden, who leads Trump in an early poll in the state. Trump said foreign leaders will get their way with Biden as president and that Pennsylvanians shouldn’t feel a kinship with the former vice president because Biden left the state when he was a child. “Don’t forget: Biden deserted you,” Trump said as he wrapped up his speech to thousands of supporters gathered...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden will head to Philadelphia Saturday, for the third and final phase of his presidential campaign rollout -- making his pitch to unite the country. Biden will hold his first campaign rally in Eakin’s Oval near the famous "Rocky steps" of the Philadelphia Art Museum Saturday afternoon. The rally, which was announced the same day Biden officially entered the race in April, will focus on his vision “for unifying America with respected leadership on the world stage -- and dignified leadership at home,” according to a press release from the campaign.
