John Lawrence Frantic Panic, Fears Carmela’s Door-to-Door Campaign — Long-time incumbent John Lawrence, the establishment’s choice to fill the 13th District seat in the Pennsylvania House, is officially panicking about Carmela Ciliberti, his opponent in Tuesday’s Republican Primary.
His new batch of expensive — expense doesn’t matter when the establishment is paying — mailers says If Carmela Ciliberti comes to your door . . . ask why she’s lying about John Lawrence.
So John, you haven’t been going to their doors to explain things?
We can see where you might have a problem Tuesday.
Lawrence says Ciliberti will do anything to win.
Carmela worked 20 years for a flight training company, before becoming a lawyer. If that doesn’t show blind lust for power, John Lawrence eats puppies.
Carmela entered the race when it appeared that Lawrence was more interested in representing establishment string-pullers than keeping the promises he had been making to his conservative constituents such as herself.
Lawrence, in his mailer, cites endorsements from various “conservative” action groups.
You ever wonder who fills their coffers? You ever think that might be part of the reason they never seem to get their way?
If Lawrence was even trying to solve this state’s problems, it would have been well apparent after the 12 years collecting a legislator’s salary. His deeds would be known and the desperate mailers unnecessary.
Melissa Hart is the sole woman in the Pennsylvania governors’ race. A former GOP congresswoman from outside Pittburgh, she describes herself as a “practical problem solver”. It should be noted that the red “learn more” button on her campaign site doesn’t move no matter how many times you press it, so you have to learn more from other sources, which you should do anyway; in other words, don’t trust the campaign website only.
Ms. Hart served from 2001 to 2007 as the first female Republican from Pennsylvania to serve in Congress. She is probably the closest we will get to a “moderate Republican”, although she is solidly anti-abortion.
On the Senate side, there is Kathy Barnette, who is among the top three candidates, and about whom much has already been written, and Carla Sands who is polling around 6 percent.
Upon the passing of her husband, Fred Sands, in 2015, she assumed the leadership of his company and became the first woman to serve as chair and CEO of Vintage Capital Group.
In 2017, President Trump appointed her as ambassador to Denmark, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands.
She is one of the wealthiest candidates in this race, having recently sold two homes for a combined $32 million.
She sees herself as the best candidate to beat John Fetterman, saying about Mehmet Oz “he actually chose as an American citizen to go fight for Turkey in the Turkish Military, not the American military” and Dave McCormick as being “closer to Beijing than to DC”.
Hopefully, we will get to a point where we forget to mention a candidate’s gender .
A jump off the bed and she pads downstairs. Scratch, scratch, scratch. The sound of litter. Ah, a space. Crouching over the box, Scaredy cat does her business. She climbs out, turns and smells the long, brown log. Yes, it’s good. That means .”POO RUN”.
Nails scratching on the wood floor, she takes off to the basement. Thump, thump, thump. Downstairs. Around the carpeted floors. Reverse.
Thump, thump, thump. Up the basement stairs. Nails skidding on the wooden floor, she skids to a stop and dashes upstairs to the bedroom. Thud, thud, thud, thud.
Door! Crash! The door bangs open and she skids to a stop on the carpet. “Meow, meow, meow.” Then, she dashes back down the stairs. Thud, thud, thud, thud, thud.
An exasperated sigh. “Dammit. Do you have to do that all the time? Can’t you just cover that shit up.”
