For the Person Who Has Everything

Doing your last minute holiday shopping? Keep in mind that Dec. 31 is the end of a campaign finance reporting period. Granted, our local congressional races are shaping up to be a little dull, unless you live in the 15th (where Sam Bennett is taking on Charlie Dent, sort of) or the 19th (where Bruce Slater is taking on Joe Pitts).

The rest of us may have to be content with state and local elections. So if Aunt Tootie has everything you could possibly think of, perhaps telling her you made a political donation instead (this is most effective if the two of you agree on politics) would do the trick. Plus you can do so at home and at the last minute.

Here's one suggestion. State Rep. Bryan Lentz (D-161) represents a district where 56% of the registered voters are Republican. He's done a fine job in his first year in office (and added fatherhood to his list of roles). His campaign website, www.votelentz.com has recently been updated and there may be some other changes to in in the near future. There is an ActBlue button on the right hand side of the main page. Click that and away you go.

A bit out of your area but we have a real good one in the 10th District.

Good point, and I think there will be a horse race over in Western PA, too. For the 10th, I leave that in your capable hands, as leader or at least influential guide of the bloggers in that area.
