If you felt an earthquake and heard a sonic boom around 9:30PM Thursday night, don’t be alarmed. That was just the aftereffects of Delco realizing they had gotten a shoutout on national TV. CNN’s John King pulled up Delaware County with his magic hands and rest was history:
Instant legend status for @JohnKingCNN. "Delaware County as well, @jaketapper told me I'm supposed to call it 'Delco' and the locals will like me. Jake Tapper IS a local, I am not, but Delco it is." #Election2020 #elections pic.twitter.com/LvD1VQjQIr

To King’s credit, he shouted out Philly guy Jake Tapper for the insight. Congrats on the seven seconds of fame, Delco. You’re no longer just the Schuylkill County of Southeast PA.
