Sam Rohrer To Make Pre-Primary Stop In Delco

Sam Rohrer, who is among those seeking the Republican nomination to take on incumbent Democrat Bob Casey Jr. — or maybe Joe Vodvarka — in this fall’s U.S. Senate race will have a Delaware County Town Hall, 7 p.m., April 11 at the Saint James Alumni Association, 1499 E. 9th St., Eddystone, Pa. 19022

For some background on Sam visit here.

To see what his principles are visit here.

The primary election is April 24. 

The State GOP has endorsed Steve Welch — a former Barack Obama and Joe Sestak supporter — for the primary race so if you are a Republican who likes Barack Obama and Joe Sestak, Welch is clearly your man. 

Me, I’m going to vote for Rohrer.

County GOPs Told Welch Or Else

The state Republican Party is warning  the county organizations about associating with those unendorsed, fiscally responsible types favored by the Tea Party.

They seem particularly concerned about U.S. candidate Steve Welch whose votes for President Obama and support for Congressman Joe Sestak isn’t sitting real well with people who think the Republican Party shouldn’t pick candidates who support Democrats.

In a letter sent to every county GOP chairman, the state honchos say:

— Only candidates endorsed by the PA GOP should be recognized and/or allowed to speak at official party events and that they should be able to attend events as complimentary guests.

— All endorsed candidates should be given an opportunity to speak at such events

— County organizations should only be circulating petitions for state-endorsed candidates.

— County chairs should decline promotional materials from non-endorsed candidates.

If the state GOP has such a handle on things, one kind of wonders how this unflattering memo is getting circulated.
