PA’s election for Auditor General: A Bangledeshi American from Philly, vs. an African American Republican from Harrisburg

The race for Auditor General in Pennsylvania has been narrowed down to a Bangledeshi American Democrat named Nina Ahmad from Philadelphia, and her opponent, Timothy DeFoor, an African American Republican from Harrisburg.

John Harris was bound to mulberry tree on Front Street, to be burned alive by Natives, but saved by Frank “Hercules” in 1733

Frank remembered when the Indian smoked his pipe and when the forest covered what is now the site of Harrisburg. He used to say he had ‘turned many a furrow between the Canal and the bridge across the river.’
