So, how did groundhogs get their reputation as forecasters of spring? Male groundhogs leave their burrows in February to look for a female’s burrow and move in upon finding one. It’s just to introduce themselves. The mating doesn’t start until spring.
GOP Establishment Endorses Novice For Superior Court — Playing games as they play games, the Pennsylvania Republican Party twisted enough arms this morning (Feb 2) to get a a woman of little experience endorsed for state Superior Court in the May 21 primary.
Megan King, a Chester County deputy district attorney — note that’s DEPUTY district attorney — was a last minute replacement for establishment favorite former state rep Kate Harper who dropped out after being overwhelmingly rejected in the caucus straw polls.
Ms. King had been considering a run for county Common Pleas Court until a panicked establishment drafted her for the state post. She has never held elected office.
Also getting endorsed by the State Committee was Cumberland County Common Pleas Court Judge Christylee Peck, who was the top vote-getter in the straw polls.
Two seats are being contested for 10-year terms on the court which is theintermediate appellate court for most matters in the state.
Not getting the endorsement was much admired, woman-of-the-people Rebecca Warren, a highly regarded former Montour County District Attorney.
Ms. Warren had finished second in the straw polls.
We will note that endorsements aren’t the final say and encourage all Republicans to vote for Ms. Peck and Ms. Warren in May.
This morning’s committee vote was reportedly 261 for Peck; 223 for King; and 131 for Warren.

Whether they have in recent elections has yet to be ascertained.
Gov. Wolf fought to release the information until finally succumbing to the persistence of State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe (R-12).
Still, the information was not released until after the November election.
Metcalfe is demanding that they be immediately removed from the voter rolls. That this didn’t happen automatically is remarkable.
