And just so you know, Dave McCormick is a seventh-generation Pennsylvanian who grew up in Bloomsburg, went to West Point, did great there and earned a Bronze Star for his service.” “Dave went on to an outstanding career in business and now is fighting for the people of this commonwealth.

President Biden’s apparent confusion at campaign events is making headlines, with the GOP releasing videos every time he wanders away from world leaders or seems to shake an imaginary hand. Democrats respond by attacking Donald Trump as less than mentally fit, mocking his odd conversational rambles into questions like whether it would be better to be electrocuted or eaten by a shark. But questions about the mental competence of America’s 2024 presidential candidates pale in comparison to the men who once led the world’s greatest empire.

Activist hedge funds are increasingly targeting closed-end funds (CEFs) to enrich themselves while ignoring the interests of retirees and retail investors.

This maneuver has led to a decline in CEFs, dropping from 495 in 2018 to 402 in 2023. Notably, three primary firms — Sa ..read more

Pennsylvania Republican U.S. Senate candidate Dave McCormick sharply criticized President Joe Biden for an executive order that grants “parole in place” to about 500,000 illegal immigrants married to U.S. citizens, a move Republicans describe as an “amnesty.” Critics and supporters alike acknowledge it’s a major move that benefits hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants, just months before the November election.
