PAGOP unveils a new mascot for the Democratic candidate's campaign -"Bobby the Duck." "Bobby Casey Jr. has been running for months and Pennsylvanians still don't know where he stands on many of the key issues working families and job creators face because he continually ducks the issues,'"said State GOP Executive Director Scott Migli. "Not only doesn't he show up for his job as state treasurer, but he has failed to provide voters with any clear vision of what he would do if elected to the United States Senate. Bobby the Duck represents the frustration voters feel about Casey."
This reminds me of the chicken suit episode of West Wing. This also was on Santorum Blog earlier but disappeared and I can't find it on the PAGOP website. I guess cooler heads prevailed and the grown ups realized just how stupid this stunt is.
For all the moaning on the Democratic side about Casey it seem the Republicans don't have their house in order. Thanks to GrassrootsPA.
Overheard On The Campaign
In the course of a one-minute speech delivered recently at the Abington Township Rockledge Boro Republican Organization Annual Dinner this past Friday, Renee Amoore, co-chair of the state GOP committee, stated:"...Regarding Santorum, I know some of you may want to just hold your noses, but please vote for him anyway!"
And the Chuck supporters turn up the heat.
Lancaster County for Pennacchio, a local grassroots campaign supporting US Senate candidate, Chuck Pennacchio, will hold a rally at 4:30pm, April 19, outside the Franklin & Marshall Alumni Sports and Fitness Center, 931 Harrisburg Pike, Lancaster, in anticipation of a three-way debate later that evening at 7pm. Sponsored by the Floyd Institute's Center for Politics and Public Affairs, this debate will be the second meeting of Democratic candidates for US Senate--Pennacchio, Alan Sandals, and Bob Casey, Jr. G. Terry Madonna will moderate.........
The possibility of a third debate in Philadelphia, home of 40% of Pennsylvania's Democratic voters, awaits the okay from the Casey campaign. The Philadelphia League of Women Voters has offered sponsorship and local TV stations have committed to air it live, but only if Casey agrees to participate, which so far he has declined to do. Both Pennacchio and Sandals have agreed to participate.
