With Republican National Convention organizers in Cleveland putting out bids for riot gear, their Democratic counterparts here remain mum on security details. Democratic National Convention organizers on Wednesday gave an update four months out from the July 25 to 28 event, and said they intended to be overprepared. They stopped short of offering specifics. "Everyone's predicting trouble in Cleveland, and there may be trouble because of the political situation, but you prepare for everything," former Gov. Ed Rendell, the convention host committee chair, said at the briefing on preparations.

WASHINGTON - Pennsylvania Republicans filed a Federal Election Commission complaint Tuesday against Democratic Senate candidate Katie McGinty, accusing her campaign chairman, former Gov. Ed Rendell, of improperly working with independent political groups. The complaint cites public comments by Rendell, who in several interviews predicted that groups backing McGinty would spend heavily to help her win the April 26 primary, sometimes forecasting spending beyond what the groups had publicly announced.

AMES, Iowa - As if the 2016 presidential campaign weren't operatic enough, now comes billionaire former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg threatening to run as an independent. His advisers say he is serious, motivated by the possibility that the major parties could nominate two people he considers extreme: real estate developer Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner, and socialist Bernie Sanders in the Democratic contest. Bloomberg has flirted with running for president several times since 2006 but has always pulled back from the brink.

Former Gov. Ed Rendell, a close friend of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, told the New York Times over the weekend that he might back his buddy if he runs for president as an independent. The caveat for Rendell, a longtime proponent of Hillary Clinton's bid for the presidency: He would only back Bloomberg if U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont won the Democratic nomination. On Monday, Rendell walked that back a bit while speaking with The Inquirer. "I like Bernie Sanders.

Former Gov. Ed Rendell on Tuesday urged a Senate panel to abandon any effort to remove Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane from office, at least until the state Supreme Court decides whether to reinstate her law license, as she has requested. The panel is considering a recommendation that the full Senate oust Kane as the state's top law enforcement official because she does not have an active law license. Rendell the state would face a "chaotic" situation if the Senate were to remove Kane and the Supreme Court later reinstated her license.

ADD ED RENDELL, wearing sneakers, to the battles of Kathleen "Kalamity" Kane. The former guv, fellow Dem, and consummate political performer soft-walked to Kane's defense yesterday. Ah, but only on the issue of whether the Senate should oust the attorney general because the Supreme Court suspended her law license. Rendell testified under oath before a Senate committee that a constitutional provision that appears to provide for Kane's removal through Senate action isn't the way to go. "The proper remedy," said Ed, "is impeachment.

ISSUE | ED RENDELL What about Paris? In the wake of 196 countries acknowledging that we need to move away from fossil fuels as a source of energy, it is a bitter pill to read Ed Rendell praising the spoils of fracking in the Marcellus region ("Time is right to develop Phila. energy, container hub," Monday). The climate agreement reached in Paris on Dec. 12 is a much-needed landmark on the road to a sustainable future, but there is much work to be done, and we cannot afford to backslide.

Former Gov. Ed Rendell waited for years - and a big audience - to spill his secret about City Councilwoman Marian B. Tasco. In front of more than 1,100 people Tuesday night in the Convention Center, Rendell described giving each of the 10 Council members who represent districts $1 million per year for community projects when he was mayor in the 1990s. Tasco persistently pitched strong projects and received more than $1 million, Rendell said. "Marian was savvy enough to never bring in schlock or things she needed for political reasons," Rendell said.
