As Congressman Joe Sestak (D-07) moves closer to a primary run for Senate, State Rep Bryan Lentz (D-161) shadows his steps into a run for the congressional seat. Shira Toeplitz of Roll Call wrote on Friday ("State lawmaker preparing to run for Sestak's house seat"). In part the article says:
Lentz said he has tapped Aubrey Montgomery, a veteran Philadelphia-area Democratic fundraiser, as his finance director to help him raised the $3 million that he needs to run his campaign.
“I’m going to take the next week or so and form a top-notch finance committee with the bigger political fundraisers and contributors from Delaware County and the region, and shortly thereafter file the papers,” Lentz said in a phone interview.
It should be noted that Montgomery worked with Seth Williams's successful DA campaign and also on Daylin Leach's winning state senate campaign (see 12/15/08 "In Philly DA race, Williams seems to emerge with early edge -- an plenty of challenges" by Dan Hirschhorn then of PolitickerPA, now at www.pa2010.com
