This is a thread about my decision process in the #PA5 Congressional District race to unseat @PatMeehanPA who is not running for reelection in a district suddenly competitive thanks to redistricting. I am looking forward to flipping this district! /1
Deciding on #PA5 is not easy but that's good since there are so many good candidates! I immediately eliminated @RepMargoDavidso - she is my state rep and her inconsistent positions on reproductive rights and a curious vote on redistricting makes me not trust her. /2
Since I started paying attention, @dwertime and @danmuroff dropped out. I haven't been engaged by @twright8471 and @ThadforCongress which eliminates them for #PA5. I don't demand personal interaction but I am not seeing anything from them at all. /3
I am a pro-union dues-paying member of SEATU but @RichLazerPHL's use of a PAC for #PA5 is a thumb in eyes for anyone who wants money out of politics. This piece mentioning PAC treasurer Tara Chupka makes me think rank & file come in 2nd to leadership. nationalreview.com/2014/03/livin-… /4
This leaves six people on my #PA5 short list. @electlarryarata and @marygayscanlon have been very proactive personally towards me. They have an edge over @lindyli, @ALunkenheimerPA, @pennsymolly and @Vitali4Congress who all seem capable and have made their presence known. /5
I appreciate that @hollyotterbein of @PhillyInquirer & @PhillyDailyNews has been very prominently covering the #PA5 race and look forward to reading her in-depth features and Twitter feed in making my final decision. /6
