Saccone And Sosa Seek Lt. Gov Nod
By Bob Small
This is another in our reviews of candidates for Pennsylvania lieutenant governor.
Dr. Rick Saccone , Ph.d., a Republican, is a prolific author (10 books) and traveler (79 countries). He was elected four times to the State House. One of his previous jobs was as a counter-intelligence officer and special agent in the United States Air Force, based in South Korea, though he also spent some time in North Korea.
He is a member of both FOAC (Firearm Owners Against Crime) and the NRA.
His two-decade political-science teaching career at St. Vincent’s College in Latrobe, Pa came to a screeching halt on Jan. 7, 2021, after the administration at St. Vincent’s saw his Facebook posting showing his presence the previous day in Washington, DC.
He is married to Yong Saccone, whom he met in South Korea.
Ray Sosa is the third Democratic Candidate for lieutenant governor. He is seeking to become the first Hispanic lieutenant governor. He has served as chairman of the governor’s Human Rights Commitee for a decade. Ray supports BLM (Black Lives Matter) and the GLBT (Gay Lesbian Bisexual Trans) community.
He also says that the lieutenant governor position must remain an elected position, never an appointed one, as has been suggested. “Anything less is an assault on our democracy.”
Ray also believes in a merit-based commutation of life sentences for prisoners “so that they can rebuild their lives”.
There are a few other websites that mention Ray Sosa, and the current ones show his support for President Biden, which is to be expected from most Democrats.
