1) Scott Walker has officially joined the race for the Republican nomination for president, a few days after unofficially joining the race with a premature announcement tweet. The jumping-the-gun tweet wasn't the fault of the Walker campaign, though – at least, that's what the folks at Twitter said – so another Republicans Aren't Good at the Internet post isn't warranted in this case.
2) FBI raids of the municipal offices in Allentown were responsible for the suspension of the U.S. Senate campaign of Ed Pawlowski, that city's mayor. On Friday, the FBI served similar warrants at the home and offices of Reading Mayor Vaughn Spencer. Any obvious connections? Politics PA notes that Mike Fleck served as a political adviser to both mayors; it also notes that Mr. Fleck just abruptly shut down his campaign strategies business and moved out of Allentown.
3) The Republicans have their candidate to fill the state Senate seat of Matt Smith; Guy Reschenthaler resigned from his seat as a district judge in Jefferson Hills so he could begin campaigning immediately.
4) The Washington Post has an interesting piece that tries to figure out just what exactly Donald Trump is hoping to accomplish with his "presidential campaign," the goals for which surely don't include an actual residency at the White House (unless he manages to buy that property, turning it into the Trump White House Resort on Pennsylvania Avenue). We're betting that it's actually pretty simple; we're all talking about Trump (The Brand), and that's pretty much all Mr. Trump wants to accomplish.
5) But there is apparently one thing for which we should thank Mr. Trump: Berkeley Breathed is resurrecting the Bloom County comic strip, and Mr. Trump's campaign is at least partially responsible for the rebirth of Opus and Milo. And that, Mr. Trump, may be the greatest thing you've ever accomplished.
