    The Times Tribune (Scranton PA) ^ | 2/6/09 | BORYS KRAWCZENIUK
    Diocese of Scranton Bishop Joseph F. Martino accuses Sen. Bob Casey of “cooperating with … evil” by refusing to back legislation to block U.S. tax dollars from flowing to foreign family planning groups that refuse to renounce abortion. In a Jan. 30 letter to the senator, the bishop also calls on Mr. Casey to live up to his Catholic faith and “oppose abortion and other clear evils, including contraception.” Bishop Martino left unclear whether Mr. Casey should be denied the Catholic sacrament of Communion, a suggestion he made during the presidential election about politicians who support abortion. Mr. Casey opposes...

    Obama supporters let down by Phila. no-show By Tom Infield Inquirer Staff Writer Posted on Fri, Jan. 16, 2009 The word that came up, again and again, was disappointed. Some longtime supporters of President-elect Barack Obama - people who gathered petitions for him, knocked on doors for him, organized their neighborhoods for him - said they felt let down at not having the opportunity to see him in person tomorrow in Philadelphia. Excited that Obama had chosen their city from which to begin his inaugural train ride to Washington, many of his most loyal backers had expected he would hold...

    A member of the Pittsburgh family that owns the Steelers will take the oath of office in Congress today. Tom Rooney, 39, of Tequesta, Fla., a Republican elected to represent Florida's 16th Congressional District, is the first Rooney to hold elected office. He is the grandson of Steelers founder Art Rooney. "Anyone from Western Pennsylvania that walks into my office is going to feel right at home," Rooney said in a phone interview Monday. His office will exhibit Steelers pictures and memorabilia because "it is the only framed art that I own."

    Times Leader (Wilkes Barre PA) ^ | 11/16/2008 | BILL O ’ BOYLE
    U.S. Rep. Paul E. Kanjorski spent more than $2 million to win his 13th term, including $10,000 in payments to a videographer who followed political opponent Lou Barletta throughout the campaign. Kanjorski, a Democrat, defeated Barletta in the Nov. 4 election by nearly 10,000 votes to retain his 11th Congressional District seat. The videographer, identified as Joe Van Wie of Agapic Films of Scranton, was observed taping Barletta at campaign rallies and fundraisers. He also caught the mayor at Hazleton City Hall before and after council meetings, said Shawn Kelly, who served as Barletta’s campaign spokesman. Van Wie may have...

    On the night of Jan. 3, 2008, little more than two weeks after the Steelers were beaten up at home by Jacksonville and little less than two days before they were to confront the Jaguars again in the first round of the National Football League playoffs, the club's normally unruffled chairman found himself unable to sleep. Around midnight, Daniel M. Rooney picked up the phone and rang his son Jim. "This is the greatest speech I've seen since John Kennedy," Dan said into the phone. "This guy connects with people like no one I've seen since John Kennedy. He convinced...

    TRIBUNE-REVIEW (Pittsburgh, PA area) ^ | Thursday, November 6, 2008 | By Chris Foreman
    The last time voters in the Democratic stronghold of Fayette County favored a Republican for the White House, President-elect Barack Obama was 11 years old. In the midst of trouncing George McGovern and winning re-election with 520 electoral votes in 1972, Republican incumbent Richard Nixon won Fayette by 4,813 votes. This year, despite an almost 41,000-registration edge for Democrats in Fayette and a 10 percent margin of victory for Obama statewide, GOP nominee John McCain beat Obama by 160 votes, according to unofficial results.

    GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin took some heat Wednesday from two of Pennsylvania's top political leaders. Democratic Gov. Ed Rendell told business leaders at a postelection breakfast that John McCain would have had a better chance of winning Pennsylvania with a different running mate, and U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter, a GOP moderate, rejected the idea that the Republican party might belong to Palin.

County spokesman Dan Stevens said that as of closing time there were still long lines at "numerous" polling places. Some precincts had as many as 70 people waiting to cast ballots. Stevens said it is estimated that more than half of the county's 306 precincts were still open after 8 p.m. "We were prepared for this," Stevens said. No one was permitted to queue up at the polling places after 8 p.m.

    I talked to one of my McCain guys a little while ago. He didn't have any data, but he said, "based just on the anecdotal evidence, we feel good about who is showing up to vote and in what numbers." Yup, strictly on anexdotal evidence, it seems like the Republican base is turning out. That doesn't mean McCain is going to win, or even that it will be close. But if the Democrats turn out (a safe bet) and the split among independents is reasonably close, it would be tough for it to be a blowout. But then again, maybe...

Pennslyvania is the *special state* of this election, the state that everyone will be talking about after the election.

Even though Pennsylvania has voted Democratic in every presidential election since 1992, many of the God-fearing, gun-loving, (American) football-playing townsfolk of Pottsville, who were raised on wages earned at the aluminium plant in nearby Cressona or the Yuengling brewery in the center of town, are voting for Republican candidate John McCain, 72.

According to The Times, the e-mailing equates “a vote for Barack Obama with the ‘tragic mistake’ of Jews who ignored the warning signs of the Holocaust.” This implies the communication suggested that Obama would somehow facilitate another Holocaust. It did no such thing. The e-mailing, from a retired...

With the presidential election a day away, the polls point to an Obama victory in Pennsylvania, with Mr. Obama...

Speaking to a wildly enthusiastic crowd at the University of Scranton, Mr. McCain used a 24-minute speech to repeatedly focus on Mr. Obama’s tax plan, charging taxes won’t increase only on the wealthy as the Democratic nominee says. About 3,000 people packed the John J. Long Center to hear Mr. McCain speak, university spokesman Stan...

But he has never wavered in his core belief of what Republicanism (with a capital 'R') and republicanism (with a lower-case 'r') are all about: Small government. Fiscal discipline. Low taxes. A strong defense. And a judiciary that does not legislate from the bench. Compared with Barack Obama's long and dangerous statist laundry list of the ever more expansive role government should play in our lives, John McCain sums it up quite succinctly,...

    For more than two weeks, John McCain, Sarah Palin and a variety of their campaign surrogates have devoted much of their attention and limited resources toward turning the Keystone State red for the first time since 1988. But with the Republican presidential nominee due in Scranton again today, most recent independent polls have shown Democratic nominee Barack Obama ahead by double digits (a few polls show a tighter race). It may be that the McCain campaign thinks there’s something about the state’s mix of rural voters, working-class whites and culturally conservative Democrats that gives it a chance invisible to pollsters....

    In Pennsylvania, John McCain is getting closer, but Barack Obama is still attracting a majority of voters. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of voters in the state shows Obama with 51% of the vote while McCain picks up 47%. That four-point advantage for Obama is down from a seven-point margin earlier in the week and a 13-point advantage for Obama earlier in the month. Just 75% of Pennsylvania Democrats now support their party’s nominee, down from 86% in the previous survey. Obama is doing a bit better among unaffiliated voters while Republican support for McCain remains steady (see crosstabs).
