ALASKA GOV. Sarah Palin should have no trouble being President if McCain can't fulfill his term. There are so many Republicans that could come to her aid with advice, and they have recent experience. For example, there's George W., Cheney, Rumsfeld, Scooter Libby, Karl Rove, to mention a few. So what's the problem? Mayer Krain Philadelphia

On Election Day, it seemed so easy. The Republican Party, out of power for 28 years in Winslow Township, swept to victory in three of four Township Committee races to forge a 6-3 advantage on the nine-member body. Euphoria was the GOP order of the day. But now, a bitter party battle threatens to engulf the Republicans as township officials prepare for tonight's annual reorganization, where the spoils of an election victory are doled out in jobs and appointments. The fight - which is over appointments but has its roots in a personal feud between Mayor Norman F. Tomasello and Committeeman James Powell - splits the Republican camp down the middle, leaving the newly formed Township Committee with an oddly fractured 3-3-3 arrangement.

Republican politicians face a choice. They can accept Hillary Clinton's invitation to abandon Donald Trump and prevent a redefinition of their party as a haven for bigotry. Or they can prop Trump up, try to maximize his vote - and thereby tarnish themselves for a generation. If there were any doubts about Trump's disqualifying lack of simple decency and empathy, he resolved them in an interview on ABC News over the weekend with a characteristically cruel and self-centered attack on Khizr and Ghazala Khan, the American Muslim couple whose son, Army Capt.

SO, IF Hollywood is all "pinko commie leftists," what does that make Bruce Willis, Bo Derek, Ray Romano, Patricia Heaton, Britney Spears, Gene Simmons, the late Johnny Ramone, et al? They're Republican. Many country artists are GOP. Even former actors turned governors - Reagan and Schwarzenegger were/are Republican. Don't think all entertainers are liberal. I have discussions with conservatives who don't resort to name-calling. The venomous tone just feeds into stereotypes that all Republicans are stodgy and incapable of accepting other points of view.

TRENTON - Republicans in the New Jersey Assembly elected a new leader Tuesday. Assemblyman Jon Bramnick of Union County succeeds Alex DeCroce, who died of an apparent heart attack last week at the end of a long day of voting at the Statehouse. DeCroce had held the top spot since 2003. Bramnick, first elected to the Assembly in 2003, has served as the GOP conference leader since 2009, and was the minority whip before that. Assemblyman Dave Rible of Monmouth County was elevated to conference leader.

To paraphrase Mark Twain, the rumors of the death of the Republican Party are greatly exaggerated. Why? One need only look to the past, present, and future to find the answers: The past: The Republican Party is rightly tagged the Grand Old Party (GOP) because it is remarkably resilient. After Franklin D. Roosevelt scored a stunning reelection victory in 1936, the GOP was left with 17 senators and 89 House members. But the party bounced back. In 1946, it won control of the Senate, and in 1953, it seized control of the House.

WHY DO Republicans continue to vote Republican? Over the last 80 years, they were against Social Security, Medicare and now health care for all. Any program that helps working people, they are against. If President Obama said he would continue tax breaks for the rich, the GOP would back him 100 percent. If the Republicans know this, why do they vote Republican? Over the years, when Republicans are asked why they voted against a bill that helps working people, their famous line is, "We voted against the bill because it does not do enough for the people.

The Republican National Committee's selection of Philadelphia yesterday as host for the 2000 convention, said Jan Larimer, made everyone feel "all real good and warm and fuzzy inside. " Maybe it was the 6-foot-long cheesesteak that Mayor Rendell presented to the Republicans. Or maybe it was the $20 million line of credit guaranteeing the GOP will get what the city has promised in cold cash and services. Whatever caused that warm feeling, Larimer, who chaired the committee that recommended Philadelphia, called the city's $50 million package "unbelievable.

HARRISBURG - Gov. Wolf's office and the state Republican Party faced off in Commonwealth Court on Tuesday over a request to release emails of Katie McGinty, the governor's former chief of staff who is now the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate. The governor's office is appealing a state Office of Open Records determination that it turn over some materials it withheld in response to a July 2015 right-to-know request from the deputy communications director of the state Republican Party.

The political conspiracy theory sounds more dastardly the further you travel from Philadelphia, where the misdeed is said to have transpired. Psst, did you hear that Mitt Romney didn't get a single vote for president in 50 divisions in Philadelphia during the 2012 general election? Not one!   It is true. It is also not that surprising to Republican Party officials in Philadelphia. They are, after all, accustomed to dealing with a 7-1 voter registration advantage held by the local Democratic Party.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, the once and perhaps future presidential candidate, campaigned in Mount Holly on Friday afternoon for first-term Republican congressman Tom MacArthur's reelection. Standing in a moist conference room packed with Republican activists in the late afternoon, Kasich praised MacArthur as a pragmatic and positive problem-solver, an example of what's right with politics. Kasich has often found himself in such places, saying such things, in the months since his bid for the GOP presidential nomination ended.

TERRACE PARK, Ohio - Sen. Rob Portman probably will win a second term, despite the fact that he deserves to. The swarm of young people who gathered on a Saturday morning in this Cincinnati suburb to feast on doughnuts and his gratitude are among the 5,000 volunteer interns, including students from 35 campuses, who have made 3.5 million voter contacts. Portman's supporters are a forgiving sort, undeterred by his many accomplishments and qualifications that could be disqualifying in this season of populist antagonism toward people who have actually governed.

One of the brightest moments of Katie McGinty's tenure as Pennsylvania's environmental secretary began in Bilbao, Spain. At a recycling conference there in 2003, she began courting a wind-turbine manufacturer, Gamesa, that would eventually invest heavily in Pennsylvania, bringing 1,000 jobs to Bucks and Cambria Counties and a U.S. headquarters to Philadelphia. Luring the company was hailed as a coup for the Rendell administration, won McGinty statewide headlines, and later garnered a mention from Republican Chris Christie as he ran for New Jersey governor.

Gov. Christie urged Republicans in Philadelphia on Sunday to boost their turnout in November, arguing that doing so could make a difference for GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump. "If the Philadelphia GOP just does a little bit to cut into the margin here in Philadelphia, Donald Trump will win Pennsylvania Nov. 8," Christie, who leads Trump's transition team, said at a fund-raiser for the Philadelphia GOP in Northeast Philadelphia. "If he wins Pennsylvania Nov. 8, he is going to be the 45th president of the United States.

Hours after Donald Trump said he hoped Russia had hacked into Hillary Clinton's private server and obtained some of her email correspondence as secretary of state, GOP surrogates sought to reshape Trump's message. "I'm sure what he means is they should be released to the FBI," former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said at a news conference in South Philadelphia, referring to the roughly 30,000 emails Clinton deleted, which she has said were personal in nature. The State Department had requested Clinton's emails to comply with a House investigation into the 2012 attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

After a raucous Republican convention nominated the very conservative Barry Goldwater in 1964, President Lyndon Johnson's campaign ran an advertisement quoting William Scranton, Pennsylvania's moderate governor, describing "Goldwaterism" as a "crazy-quilt collection of absurd and dangerous positions. " Welcome to what will certainly be one of the central themes of the Democratic National Convention. Donald Trump's nomination at a dark and angry convention in Cleveland and his acceptance speech embracing a racially tinged authoritarian nationalism open up a wealth of opportunities for Hillary Clinton's campaign.
