    The Trump campaign has announced that the candidate will deliver a major speech in historic Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on Saturday, October 22. He will present his closing arguments for American voters, outlining the steps he will take in his first 100 days to make America great again. I hope it’s his best speech yet. For all his gaffes and misstatements, the fact is this: The race is not over until it’s over. (Even when he means it’s over.) So, as Trump heads into his Gettysburg address, I want to emphasize what he should replay from last week’s debate, and what...

It would also withhold state funding from any municipality that does not comply within 90 days of the law's effective date. Thirty-two counties in Pennsylvania have written or unwritten sanctuary policies that they will not honor detainment orders issued by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials, according to a Temple University's Beasley School of Law report.

    Republican Sens. Marco Rubio and Pat Toomey became the latest Republicans to speak out against Donald Trump's warnings of a rigged election Monday night. In separate high-stakes debates, the two incumbent U.S. senators each refuted Trump's claim that the results of the 2016 election could be tainted, and both men called for confidence in next month's vote. "Our elections may not always be completely perfect, but they are legitimate, they have integrity and everyone needs to respect the outcome," Toomey said during his debate with challenger Katie McGinty when asked about the Republican presidential nominee's allegations, which he's been repeating...

    PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA/AP) – Donald Trump continues to insist that there’s a lot of fraud in the U.S. voting system. Yesterday, Trump lashed out at Republicans who’ve tried to tone him down, calling his own party’s leaders “so naive.” A study by a Loyola Law School professor found that out of 1 billion votes cast in all American elections between 2000 and 2014, there were only 31 known cases of impersonation fraud. Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf tells the “KDKA Morning News” that Trump’s claims are “dangerous” and that, “It really could undermine the legitimacy of our system.” “We have...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | October 17, 2016 | Timothy P. Carney
    Art Halvorson may be the most interesting Democratic nominee for Congress this election—in part because he's really a Tea Party Republican. Halvorson in 2014 ran against pork-barreling Transportation Committee chairman and political legacy Bill Shuster. Shuster is most famous for his relationship with an airline lobbyist, an obvious conflict of interest for a Transpo chairman. Halvorson ran again this year, and lost the GOP primary to Shuster by only 1,200 votes—about 1 percent of the electorate. That same day, however, 1,069 Democratic voters wrote in his name on the Democratic primary ballot. No Democrat had filed to run, and Halvorson...

Two staffers directly involved in the GOP's efforts in Virginia confirmed the decision. The move to pull out of Virginia shows Trump is "running essentially a four state campaign," with the focus now shifting to battlegrounds critical to his chances in November: Pennsylvania, Florida, North...

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) report found that much of the Sage Grouse’s habitat sits on top of extremely valuable deposits of minerals including gold, copper, lithium, silver, uranium and many others. The USGS report means that the government’s most restrictive grouse protection plan could kill even more than 31,000 jobs and lead to more than $5.6 billion in reduced annual economic...

    When Hispanic residents of downtown Allentown want to grab a bite, get their hair cut or shop for groceries, they often head to Seventh Street — but they don’t call it that. To them, it’s Calle Siete. A councilman wants to honor the city’s growing Hispanic population by installing decorative Spanish-language street signs on one of its main commercial thoroughfares, where a profusion of Latino-owned restaurants, barbershops and corner stores reflects the rapidly changing demographics of the state’s third-largest city. Hispanics now represent nearly half the population of 120,000. But where Democratic Councilman Julio Guridy and other residents and business...

    Vulnerable Senate Republicans have widened their leads over Democratic challengers in Ohio and Pennsylvania, pollsters said Wednesday, though Senate contests in other swing states are dead heats or too close to call — buoying Democrats who say they’re gaining momentum after high-profile stumbles by Donald Trump and down-ballot candidates.
