Jeff Bartos Bob Asher Connection — Among the nine Republicans (so far) seeking the nomination to take on Sen. Bob Casey Jr. — oh has he shamed his father — is well-connected businessman Jeff Bartos.
Bartos, who was division president for Toll Brothers and ran North American operations of Mark Group’s global energy efficiency business, has the seal of approval from PA Future Fund.
That’s three strikes there.
PA Future Fund is a political action committee chaired by Bob Asher, who we will refrain from describing on the “if you can’t say anything nice” principle.
OK, we will note he backed John Kasich in a desperate last minute attempt to keep Donald Trump from getting the nomination last year.
Bartos does not seem to be the guy we want in our battle against special interests.
