As Republicans ready for the pop political venue known as the Republican National Convention, Joe Rooney readied himself for a pop political venue known as the 13th Congressional District.

"I'm in this race because Allyson Schwartz is beatable." Current 13th Congressional District Democrat lawmaker Allyson Schwartz just isn't there, Rooney said. "I'm a firm believer in hard work. I believe hard work pays off," Rooney said. "I will work harder and smarter and it will pay off in the end." Rooney, GOP candidate for the 13th District, was welcomed Monday night by Wayne Sharp and…

Montgomery County is further splintered in the congressional redistricting map put together by Republicans in the Pa. General Assembly.
