    Clinton rally in North Philly could snarl morning traffic
    The last Philadelphia event connected with the Democratic National Convention will bring the party's nominee to Temple University Friday. But transportation officials aren't expecting Hillary Clinton's noon post-nomination rally to create much disruption. The Broad Street Line and Regional Rail will run as usual Friday through the Temple University stop, SEPTA officials said.
