It’s been a very busy week chock full of events. Already I’ve rolled 600 miles on the old car and I’ll be in Philadelphia for a third consecutive day to cover an event with the Secretary of Commerce this afternoon. Wednesday Congressional candidate Bryan Lentz held an event with young professionals at The Warwick Hotel. Bryan is running for Joe Sestak’s seat in the Seventh Congressional District. He was an original candidate for this seat four years ago then opted to run for the State House when Admiral Sestak stepped up. After serving two distinguished terms in Harrisburg Bryan is running to succeed Joe. I interviewed Bryan in early December (not for the blog) and he’s not only a very nice guy but a true progressive. Pat Meehan was the U.S. Prosecutor in Philadelphia for George W. Bush, John Ashcroft, Karl Rove and Alberto Gonzales. These “Loyal Bushies” only survived in their positions if they toes the White House line and prosecuted Democrats. This enabled State Se. Vince Fumo a legitimate defense to corruption charges and deeply tarnished the reputations of the prosecutors and the Justice Department.
There is a clear choice in the 7th CD this year between a man of integrity, a former soldier in the Army Rangers, and a Loyal Bushie. Bryan is introduced by Gaetano Piccirilli in the video:
