Daylin Leach ends his congressional campaign amid harassment allegations:

http://www.philly.com/philly/news/politics/daylin-leach-ends-congressional-campaign-pennsylvania-harassment-allegations-20180225.html

Excerpt:

In a lengthy late-night Facebook post that name-dropped Robert Frost, Robert Kennedy and President Trump, State Sen. Daylin Leach made it official: His stalled congressional campaign is finished.

Leach’s statement, which was posted online shortly after 10:30 p.m. Saturday, came a little more than two months after the Inquirer and Daily News first reported that eight women who had either worked for Leach or the Pennsylvania Democratic Party had accused the three-term senator of subjecting them to unwanted physical contact or sexually charged conversations.

Some fellow Democrats, including Gov. Wolf, immediately called on Leach to resign and abandon his attempt to unseat Republican U.S. Rep. Pat Meehan in what was then the Seventh Congressional District. But Leach initially demurred, opting to announce that he was simply “taking a step back” from his campaign as he assessed the fallout from the allegations.

A Wolf spokesman said the governor did not have any statement to release about Leach’s decision Sunday night.

Florida students plan March For Our Lives, Mar. 24.

Teen survivors of the school shooting massacre in Florida last week are calling for a march on Washington to demand action on gun control.


Student organizers of the protest told ABC News' "This Week" Co-Anchor Martha Raddatz on Sunday that they are determined to use protests and political action to make the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas in Parkland, Florida, a turning point in the national debate over gun control.

“People keep asking us, what about the Stoneman Douglas shooting is going to be different, because this has happened before and change hasn't come?” Cameron Kasky, an 11th-grader told Raddatz. “This is it.”

Called "March for Our Lives," the demonstration in Washington is to be on March 24, according to Kasky and four of his classmates whom Raddatz also interviewed -- Emma Gonzalez, David Hogg, Alex Wind and Jaclyn Corin.

In addition to the march in Washington, the organizers also plan protests in other cities around the country.
