    ... The previous representative, anti-abortion Republican Tim Murphy, was forced to resign last year when it was reported he urged his mistress to have an abortion.

    Democrats 2020
    WHY CONOR LAMB’S RED-STATE STRATEGY COULD BE TRUMP KRYPTONITE IN 2020
    It’s not just that Lamb moved toward the middle on some social issues. He also respected his district’s voters—a reminder that the Democratic Party might try being more inclusive, itself, as it takes aim at the heartland.

    What the Pennsylvania election should teach both parties

    By Editorial Board

    THE RESULTS of a Tuesday special election in a usually deep-red congressional district are just the latest sign that Republicans’ toxic embrace of President Trump is hurting not only the country but also their party.

    Trump is a freak of political nature. Here’s how you can beat him

    By Philippe Reines


    But if you’re game to enter an even more vitriolic and bizarre world than 2016, a few suggestions:

    ●Go high when you can. But when he goes low, take advantage of the kneeling to knock his block off.

    ●Don’t apologize, ever, not over money you took from Harvey Weinstein, not even for attacking the pope; in fact, proactively attack the pope, if your kid is a shoplifter, you’re proud of them for exposing inadequate security ...

    ... The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled in January that the congressional map enacted in 2011 violated the state constitution's provisions on partisan gerrymandering.
    National and Pennsylvania Republicans have asked the U.S. Supreme Court to vacate the state court's ruling, but thus far no decision has been made on that request.
