    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Rich, Republican and want to be a U.S. senator? Pennsylvania might as well hang a welcome sign. The presidential battleground state’s high-stakes race for an open Senate seat is seeing candidates with big bank accounts and big-time connections exchanging their blue-state mansions for decidedly purple Pennsylvania, and pursuing an opportunity they might never have at home. Introducing Carla Sands, Mehmet Oz — best known as the host of TV’s “Dr. Oz Show” — and David McCormick, all three of whom seem prepared to spend millions of their own dollars to win a Senate seat. Their arrival seems to be a testament to Republican optimism about winning in Pennsylvania, a bellwether state and one of the nation’s biggest presidential electoral prizes, backing Democrat Joe Biden in last year’s election and former President Donald Trump in 2016. It’s also a test in an increasingly nationalized political environment of whether voters care about how deeply their representatives are tied to the state — or whether carpetbagging will be a pivotal issue in next year’s contest to replace retiring two-term...
              more   Republican Rich McCormick, running for Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District, previously said four GOP members of Congress had endorsed his candidacy, but on Thursday he said they did not actually endorse him. McCormick said he made a mistake. “I am not a good politician. I’m just going to admit it. I am a good Marine and a good doctor. I have done that for decades, but political speak is difficult for me sometimes when people say ‘I 100 percent support you.’ Some people use language that is very confusing to a guy,” McCormick told The Georgia Star News. “My understanding is that they endorsed me. That’s my mistake, not having that confirmed. Some of them endorsed me in the Seventh [Congressional District race], but they didn’t endorse me because I switched to the Sixth. It is what it is. I made a mistake. I own that. We are going to move on. We are right now collecting our endorsements in writing so that when we do our next release it’ll be far more accurate.” The Atlanta Journal Constitution (AJC)...
    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — The Democratic Florida congressional candidate who lost a special election primary by five votes has filed two lawsuits asking that the result be thrown out, alleging his opponent’s support of a universal income plan amounted to bribing voters. Dale Holness alleges Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick’s support of a proposal that would pay most U.S. adults $1,000 a month was an attempt to illegally bribe voters. His lawsuit also wants counted 18 overseas mail-in ballots received from military members and others that were rejected by elections officials because they arrived after Election Day and, official said, didn’t qualify for an extension. He also says Cherfilus-McCormick should be disqualified because she did not file a financial disclosure form with the U.S. House. Cherfilus-McCormick, a health-care company executive, won the Nov. 2 primary to replace longtime U.S. Rep. Alcee Hastings, who died of cancer in April. Florida’s 20th District is overwhelmingly Democratic and she is heavily favored to win the January general election to fill the last year of Hastings’ term. The state certified her victory two weeks ago, saying...
    PRESS RELEASE -- The Chicago Automobile Trade Association (CATA), producer of the Chicago Auto Show, announced today that the 2022 event will return to its traditional February timeframe - Feb. 12-21 - at McCormick Place. The show is open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. each day, except for the final day of the show (Presidents Day) when it closes at 8 p.m. Tickets to the public show are now available for purchase online at ChicagoAutoShow.com."While there were many wonderful aspects of our summertime 'special edition' show, we're excited to return to February as it's historically been an ideal time for consumers to get out and beat the winter doldrums by experiencing the industry's latest cars, trucks and SUVs," said Chicago Auto Show Chairman Bill Haggerty.

That said, we learned a lot from the July 2021 event that we plan to implement in February. The show will also feature popular...
    BROWARD (CBSMiami) – Congressional primary race runner-up Dale Holness has filed a lawsuit seeking to overturn Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick razor-thin win. Holness claims in the lawsuit that Cherfilus-McCormick “is ineligible to hold office.” CLICK HERE READ THE LAWSUIT Cherfilus-McCormick won the Democratic Primary for the 20th Congressional District by a mere five votes. One of Holness’ claims is that mail-in ballots from military service members were improperly rejected, and the smallest of votes could swing the result. He also pointed to the fact she didn’t file a financial disclosure report with the Clerk of the House of Representatives. Also of note, Holness claims Cherfilus-McCormick’s campaign promise to give adults making less than $75,000 a monthly check of $1,000 was basically a bribe. “The ‘plan’ is intended to offer a false hope to underserved communities with the intention and purpose of procuring votes in return,” the lawsuit read.
    The Democratic primary race for Florida's Congressional District 20, which was represented by congressman Alcee Hastings until he died from pancreatic cancer this year, is headed for a recount. Liberal candidate Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick led Broward County Commissioner Dale Holness by just 31 votes (11,372-11,341 votes) with 100% of precincts reporting, according to Politico . Under Florida law, the contest is close enough for an automatic recount. Whoever wins will face off against Republican nominee Jason Mariner, a businessman who defeated Greg Musselwhite with roughly 58% of the vote in the GOP primary. The candidates are running to represent Broward County and Palm Beach, Florida. The district is historically blue, and the Democrat is likely to win the general election set for January. ALCEE HASTINGS, LONGTIME FLORIDA DEMOCRATIC HOUSE MEMBER, DIES AT 84 Cherfilus-McCormick, a Haitian American, is not a stranger to Washington, D.C. As the CEO of healthcare company Trinity Health Care Services, she advocated for healthcare reform on Capitol Hill. "With every door that opened she took each opportunity to advocate...
    (CNN)The primary election Tuesday to replace the late Florida Rep. Alcee Hastings has been marked by two things: the massive number of candidates and a lack of voter interest in them."I think most people don't even know there's an election, unfortunately," said Florida Rep. Lois Frankel.But the off-year special election featuring 11 Democrats presents a candidate with the opportunity to represent a safe seat for decades. Hastings represented the majority-Black area encompassing parts of Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach in Congress for 28 years, and became the dean of the Florida delegation.The candidates are: health care executive Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick, Broward County commissioners Dale Holness and Barbara Sharief, state Sen. Perry Thurston, state Rep. Omari Hardy, state Rep. Bobby DuBose, Elvin Dowling, former Palm Beach County commissioner Priscilla Taylor, Phil Jackson, Emmanuel Morel and Imran Siddiqui.Holness has raised over $580,000 from outside supporters, the most of any candidate according to the latest FEC filings. But others -- Thurston, DuBose, Hardy, Cherfilus-McCormick and Sharief -- have all raised at least six figures from contributors. Cherfilus-McCormick and Sharief have also loaned their...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — McCormick Place is expecting to generate $1.2 billion for the City of Chicago and the State of Illinois this coming year – not too shabby at all considering the COVID-19 pandemic. CBS 2’s Tara Molina took a closer look Thursday at the impact now and moving forward as conventions ramp up.

    A neighbor of the couple accused of selling U.S. secrets said Jonathan and Diane Toebbe "didn't talk to anybody" and called their arrest a "big shock" for the community. Jonathan Toebbe, a Navy nuclear engineer with access to military secrets, and his wife, Diana Toebbe, were arrested in West Virginia Saturday on espionage-related charges. NAVY NUCLEAR ENGINEER'S WIFE ARRESTED FOR SELLING SECRETS APPEARS TO SUPPORT BLM, 'RESISTANCE' MOVEMENTS Toebbe was charged with trying to pass information about the design of American nuclear-powered submarines to someone he thought was a representative of a foreign government but turned out to be an undercover FBI agent. The couple is being charged with violating the Atomic Energy Act, which restricts the disclosure of information related to atomic weapons or nuclear materials.  Fox News spoke with Jennifer McCormick, a neighbor of the Toebbes, who said the couple kept to themselves. "They didn’t talk to anybody, even on the block," McCormick told Fox News. "We’ve lived here over 20 years. They moved here in 2014 and been up and down this block so many times, and...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — Four people were rushed to the hospital Sunday after a crash in the North Park community. The crash happened at the intersection of Lincoln Avenue and McCormick Road. One man was taken to AMITA Health St. Francis Hospital in, and a man and woman were taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center – all in serious-to-critical condition, the Fire Department said. Another woman was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic in fair-to-serious condition. Information from police was not immediately available.
    CHICAGO (CBS) — What a difference two months make. In mid-July, conventions and big events like the Chicago Auto Show returned to McCormick Place. We saw big crowds and few masks, and didn’t think much of it. READ MORE: Two More Carjackings Reported On Northwest Side In Bucktown, Hermosa Neighborhoods But just afterward, the Delta variant of the coronavirus spread, and the world took a U-turn back to strict COVID protocols.

The RAPID + TCT conference – one of the 3D printing industry’s largest conferences – was initially planned for April. They also planned from the beginning to spread things out more this year on the convention hall floor. “We designed the floor plan quite differently this year with...
    McCormick Place is a 2.6 million square foot convention center near downtown Chicago. It hosts all kinds of events, such as medical conferences, auto shows, and oddity expositions. The facility is the largest convention center in the US. It was also recently found to be causing huge problems for birds. David Willard, a researcher from the Field Museum, has studied bird collisions for 40 years and recently released a study that outlines his findings. According to his research, every night, up to 200 birds die as a result of crashing into McCormick Place. While this statistic is heartbreaking, the study also provided a solution: turning off the lights at night. On nights when the lights were off, 11 times fewer bird collisions would occur during the spring migration season and 6 times fewer during the fall migration season. Experts estimate that between 365 million and one billion birds die from crashing into glass-sided buildings every year in the U.S. During the daytime, glass often reflects back the sky, and thus, the birds fly right into them without hesitation. At...
    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Aledmys Díaz singled in the go-ahead run in the 10th inning and the Houston Astros beat the Kansas City Royals 6-3 on Thursday, avoiding a four-game sweep. Díaz finished 3-for-4 with a double and two RBIs for the AL West leaders. With the bases loaded in the 10th, he fouled off a 3-2 pitch from Wade Davis and drove the next one up the middle. Houston added two more runs on a bases-loaded walk by Chas McCormick and a sacrifice fly by Taylor Jones. Ryan Pressly (5-1) worked a scoreless ninth for Houston. Christian Javier pitched a perfect 10th for his second save. Davis (0-3) allowed two hits and a walk in the 10th and did not record an out. Nicky Lopez hit a two-run homer in the third to put the Royals ahead 3-0, his first home run since Aug. 8, 2020 — a span of 464 at-bats. Carlos Correa led off the fourth with a double for the Astros. He went to third on a single by Díaz, but the Astros only scored...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — More than $3 billion – that is how much revenue was lost at McCormick Place during the pandemic shutdown. And if you can imagine, that number was expected to be much higher.
