    Keystone State residents said the former secretary of state can’t take winning Pennsylvania for granted, in spite of a historically favorable climate for Democrats. A Republican presidential candidate hasn’t carried Pennsylvania since George H.W. Bush in 1988. But one recent Quinnipiac University poll showed Donald Trump would beat Clinton in the state, and her backers recognize the threat.

    This week at the Democratic National Convention, much of the focus was not on nominee Hillary Clinton, but on Bernie Sanders and his enthusiastic contingent of young supporters. While some had speculated that Sanders supporters would fall in line after his endorsement of Clinton, it appears that this consolidation has yet to gain any momentum. Bernie supporters, emboldened by the recent DNC email leak, took to the streets in Philadelphia to voice their displeasure with Hillary and the Democrat party as a whole. With chants of “Hell no DNC, we won’t vote for Hillary” and “Lock her up,” the protesters...

    No state is more important to Donald Trump’s chances of winning the White House than Pennsylvania, and — unlike any Republican presidential in the past 20 years — he actually has a chance to win it. In the Scranton-Wilkes Barre section of the state — up Interstate 81 in the northeast part — Mr. Trump is so popular that businesses are actually advertising their support of his candidacy.

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Wind gusts, heavy rain and lightning have forced people to evacuate the media tents outside of the Wells Fargo Center and take shelter less than an hour before the opening gavel on the final night of the Democratic National Convention. Officials say that the media tents in the vicinity of the Wells Fargo Center are not designed to fully protect people in the event of a direct lightening strike. They’re strongly recommending that people leave their tents due to lightening that becomes a concern when the strikes are within a six-mile radius of the DNC and evacuate...

    After a week of raucous protests that some had hoped and others had feared would disrupt the city and the Democratic National Convention, Thursday saw emptying streets, packing protesters, and the dying flame of their clamor. Across the city, smatterings of protesters held out - and one group planned a final march from South Philadelphia to the Wells Fargo Center Thursday night, a last chance to rally with delegates in the arena. But the demonstrations that had filled Philadelphia's streets day and night began fizzling on the convention's last day as severe thunderstorms rumbled into the city and exhaustion reigned....

Despite pleas for unity, including one from Sanders himself, many said they would not fall in line.

The Left is now going after the Republican nominee with brass knuckles.

Then Hillary Clinton was recorded on tape laughing at how her client had failed a lie detector test while relishing describing how she had gotten him off.

The revelations in the emails are a scandal, to be sure. But the broader scandal is that...

    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.
