The race for Tim Murphy's seat will be in the national spotlight this March, New York Magazine reported.

National observers will be watching closely as this conservative district votes, carefully examining margins at the polls in what could be a harbinger for the 2018 general election.
Deleting tweets might not seem like such a big deal, but when politicians use social media as the main way to communicate with the people they represent, erasing comments calls transparency into question.

James Harrison is a Patriot. Yes, this is real. Deebo was posing for selfies with Tom Brady, taking reps at Patriots practice and Ben Roethlisberger was quoted Wednesday saying things like, “it’s not like he called and asked me if he should do it or not.” Harrison was cut over the weekend and popped up in New England this week, injecting even more life into one of the best rivalries in the NFL. It’s even led some to suggest Harrison is a spy. This isn’t just some wacky fan theory, either. TV talking heads are bringing it up, even if it’s the most ridiculous thing ever.
