More on Andy Warren

In the May 6th Morning Call, there is an article on Andy Warren, saying he mortgaged his house and used the proceeds to loan his campaign $75,000, in addition to the $50,000 he has already loaned the campaign. I always want to see a candidate donate some money to their campaign, but anything that is primarily self-funded doesn't show a lot of public support.

In yesterday's Bucks County Courier Times article (on phillyburbs), Warren said this:

Warren said he always dreamed of becoming Pennsylvania’s governor, a hope he admits is no longer a possibility. He lost his only race for state office in 1986, when he was defeated by then-state Rep. Jim Greenwood for a seat in the state Senate.

Ever since he left Doylestown for his job at PennDOT, he said he has itched to get into another race and, he believes, Congress might be his last run.


I'm not sure that is a good reason to vote for him. He is running against Patrick Murphy for the Democratic spot in the 8th congressional district.

Warren and Murphy were both profiled in a story on Ch 6 (WPVI) 6PM news the other day about the primary in the 8th. Both men did a great job of not attacking each other, but focusing on bashing the Republican party.

Good work!
