>>November Is Pennsylvania's Worst Month Since Pandemic Began

(Lehigh, PA) -- November is Pennsylvania's worst month yet since the pandemic began according to health officials. Officials say in November alone, the state counted more than 143-thousand cases of COVID-19, which is greater than the last five-months combined. The University of Washington Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation projects Pennsylvania will reach intensive care unit bed capacity next month as the state has less than 20-percent of ICU beds left. More than 42-hundred Pennsylvanians were hospitalized with the virus, and the state is projected to record between 17-thousand and 34-thousand deaths related to the virus by March.

>>Pennsylvania Supreme Court Dismisses Trump Campaign Challenge

(Williamsport, PA) -- President Trump's legal options against the election results are dwindling after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court rejected another challenge over the weekend. In a 5-2 decision, the court shot down Congressman Mike Kelly's attempt to invalidate mail-in ballots by arguing that its provisions violate provisions of the state constitution. However, in 2019, lawmakers enacted a law allowing wider voting by mail, which was used in the last two elections. This comes as Wisconsin's recount of ballots solidified President-elect Joe Biden's victory and Governor Tom Wolf certified Pennsylvania's election results last Tuesday.
