Meehan Gets Independence Hall Endorsement — The influential Independence Hall Foundation, a conservative grass roots organization with thousands of followers in the tri-state (DE, NJ, PA) region, is announcing today that its Board of Directors has voted unanimously to endorse Pat Meehan for Congress in the April 26 Pennsylvania Primary.
“The 20-member Board of the Independence Hall Foundation has chosen to endorse Congressman Meehan (PA-7) because of his conservative record on fiscal, social, and defense issues” said Foundation spokesperson, Teri Adams, of Montgomery County, PA.
“We supported Pat Meehan when he first ran for office in 2010 and we fought hard to flip the seat from D to R as Democrat Joe Sestak had been the seat’s prior occupant.
“We see absolutely no reason to withdraw our support now.
“In fact, we are proud of Congressman Meehan’s efforts to overturn ObamaCare; defund Planned Parenthood; lower taxes; decrease spending; expose corrupt practices of the Veterans Administration; hold the Obama Administration accountable on the Benghazi and Fast and Furious scandals; and support our nation’s military preparedness.
“In January 2015, Congressman Meehan spoke at the Foundation’s Delaware Valley Pro-Blue Rally in support of our region’s law enforcement community.
“While we may not agree with every vote cast by Congressman Meehan, we are more than pleased with his overall record,” said Ms. Adams.
Meehan is being challenged in the April 26 Republican primary by Stan Casacio.
