Allyson Schwartz Has Paid Her Dues!!

In a 12/19 article from the Politico, "Dem leaders try tix-for-cash fundraising," by Josephine Hearn, we learn that:

Among Democrats, party leaders have dictated that each lawmaker must contribute $125,000 to $800,000 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, with exact amounts depending on seniority and leadership positions.

The only Pennsylvanian on the list of 17 House Democrats (plus the Speaker) to have paid their allotted amount in full is Rep. Allyson Schwartz of the 13th congressional district.

Any whiffs of a challenger to Allyson ?

I've heard a few rumbles but nothing seems to have developed so far.

You are doing a great job keeping track of all the players in the 10th congressional district!

Thanks Jane,

I love Allyson but I hate uncontested elections. No one should get a free ride.

The last time around Raj and his people provided much needed comic relief if nothing else. Whatever happened to the movie he was making about the race?

I agree completely, my friend. Not only is it bad for democracy it makes life less interesting for bloggers. ;) Raj's film probably met the same fate as his campaign.

Marina Kats is running as the Republican. She is a highly succesful attorney from Abington with a ton of connections and she is pretty moderate whose serious about illegal immigration. Keep an eye out for her...
