When Ed Hanway, who made millions as chairman of Cigna Corp. and is devoting his retirement to reviving Catholic high schools in the Philadelphia region, goes to Eagles games with his children, he parks in a far lot and sits in the stands with the masses. "No VIP treatment for the chairman of Cigna," said Charlie Pizzi, who has known Hanway for about 20 years. "I think that illustrates the kind of person he is and why he wants to give back now. " When asked Tuesday about his Philadelphia Eagles habit, Hanway, who buys his own season tickets, maintaining a family tradition that goes back to 1958, laughed and said: "Super boxes are not where the real fans are. " When it comes to his Catholic faith, H. Edward Hanway, 60, is no more inclined to keep his distance.

Usually at this point in the primary process, Pennsylvania voters are rubber-stamping a presumptive nominee who will cruise to a first-ballot nomination at the national convention. Not this year. On Tuesday, Keystone State Republicans can have an impact. They can send a message. And if the message is, We want a shot at putting Pennsylvania in the red column in November, their choice is clear: Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Start with experience. As governor since 2011, the 63-year-old Western Pennsylvania native has more time as an executive than his two GOP opponents combined - the kind in which you can't fire someone because you didn't get your way. He was also a state senator and served 18 years in Congress.

CLEVELAND - The Republican race enters a new, more intensive phase after the first televised debate, which apparently drew more viewership than the NBA Finals. It will take a while for perceptions to percolate and polls to shift, if history is any guide, but a few story lines emerged as potential game-changers after the debate, by far the most-watched program in the history of Fox News Channel. Donald Trump, who got most of the airtime and threw rhetorical bombs, had soared into the lead of the 17-candidate field - improbably so, to insiders - but his prime-time performance Thursday, and follow-up comments Friday, could slow his roll.
