Fitzpatrick Parties in NJ

Most candidates will hold fundraisers in a number of places, their home districts, Washington, D.C., and so on. But I do find it odd that Mike Fitzpatrick, Republican candidate in the 8th congressional district, is hopping across the river to hold a fundraiser on the Battleship New Jersey, docked on the Camden waterfront. The battleship itself is wonderful. I've taken a couple of tours in the past few years, and encourage others to do the same -- combine it with a trip to the aquarium for a day out. There's a nice cafeteria across the street from the aquarium or walk down to the Victor Pub for lunch. There are some nice boats on the Pennsylvania side of the river, though, too, and I wonder why he decided to leave the state to raise money.

(For details see an announcement on his campaign Facebook page.)
