Pennsylvania is expanding efforts to make the anti-overdose medication naloxone available to the public with a statewide distribution day next week.

Officials said Thursday that naloxone will be provided free to any state resident at 80 locations — most of them state, county and municipal health offices — from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Dec. 13.

The drug is also regularly available at most pharmacies in Pennsylvania, at little or no cost for those with insurance.

Democrat Tina Davis said in a statement Tuesday that she's ending her campaign against Republican Sen. Robert Tomlinson.

Thanksgiving is over but for many around Pennsylvania Monday marked the start of an unofficial holiday: the opening of deer rifle season.

The season goes until Dec. 8.

Hunters are only allowed to take deer with antlers until Friday. After that, both antlered and antlerless deer can be taken.

The game commission says unseasonably warm weather, high levels of precipitation and a later-than-normal leave drop have made it more difficult to track deer movements this fall.

The commission is encouraging hunters to scout for deer before setting up their spot.

Democrat Mary Gay Scanlon has become the first woman in Pennsylvania's congressional delegation since 2014.

Scanlon was sworn in Tuesday to an open congressional seat in southeastern Pennsylvania left vacant after Republican Pat Meehan resigned in April.

Scanlon last week won a special election to fill the remaining seven weeks of Meehan's term in the Delaware County-based seat. The four-term Meehan resigned while under an ethics investigation for using taxpayer money to settle a former aide's sexual harassment complaint.

Pennsylvania voters are sending a record four women to the U.S. House of Representatives.

All four victors are Democrats who won open seats in the Philadelphia suburbs and the Lehigh Valley. Three of them won in districts that had been under Republican control before the state Supreme Court redrew their boundaries in a bid to make them more competitive.

Pennsylvania had never sent more than two women to the House at any one time.

Democrat Bob Casey has won a third U.S. Senate term from Pennsylvania, beating Republican Rep. Lou Barletta.

Casey thanked Barletta, for what he said was a "very gracious" phone call to congratulate him.

Barletta was an early supporter of Donald Trump, who returned the favor by stumping for the former Hazleton mayor. The president narrowly won Pennsylvania in 2016, but Casey easily won re-election Tuesday in a place that has now given the son of the late former governor six statewide election victories.

An apparent gas explosion leveled an empty mansion in an affluent suburb of Philadelphia on Sunday, reducing the 9,000-sq. foot home to rubble and frightening neighbors and others who felt the thunderous boom.

The explosion at the Gladwyne mansion happened just after 8 p.m., and was felt as far away as southern New Jersey.

The house was undergoing extensive renovations, authorities said, and no one was inside the home at the time of the explosion. It was reduced to a few walls and rubble, as various debris ended up strewn among nearby trees.
