If anyone had any doubt that the Lehigh County Executive race had become tight, it should be gone now. My household was one of many Supervoter Democrat households to receive a robocall from Congressman Dent today. In the call, Dent urges listeners to vote for Republican executive candidate Scott Ott, and testifies for Scott Ott’s worthiness to be executive. I don’t think this is a good idea for Dent. He is identifying himself with the more extreme elements of his party. I think it is a political calculus equation that is flawed. He is trying to appease two opposing sides in his own party, and may end up with both angry at him.
One key thing to know about Democratic Lehigh County Executive nominee Tom Muller is that he was a lifelong Republican, but he switched parties recently because the tea-infused Republican Party has completely lost its mind. That is what actual moderate Republicans have been doing in Southeast PA for some time now – becoming Democrats or independents.
But not Charlie Dent! He thinks this guy is a better choice for Lehigh County Executive than the guy who was a moderate registered Republican until a couple years ago:
2. Ott questions why blacks were loyal to Democrats given the party’s promotion of “genocide” for black babies saying abortion does not, “just decimate the black population, for that means killing only 1-in-10. The Democrat party actively, passionately pushes policies that target the race for genocide, with white “physicians” slaughtering a full 50 percent of black infants before they ever draw breath”.
