Urban endorses Madeira
Luzerne County Commissioner Stephen A. Urban, the only Republican commissioner, is supporting Dr. David Madeira in the upcoming 20th Senatorial District primary. The minority commissioner joins former U.S. Rep. Pat Toomey in endorsing Madeira. In a letter sent to The Citizens' Voice, Urban said Madeira impressed him in terms of his family values and his strong support for the Second Amendment. "Because David Madeira does not represent any political groups deeply entrenched in Harrisburg or have well-connected special interest benefactors, he will make decisions based on what is good for the people of Pennsylvania," Urban stated in the letter. He also called Madeira an "independent voice that will restore economic prosperity to Pennsylvania."
I don't think endorsements count for much but add this one to Pat Toomey, Wayne County attorney Errol Flynn and the Eagle Forum. Lisa Baker has a long list of endorsements including former Gov. Ridge. Jim Haggerty lists a few on his site. Russ Bigus says he has the sportsmen and Carl Sutton stands on his own. The only Democrat in the race, Robert McNamara, isn't playing that game.
