Thread: Primary Challenge Advice
#1 Primary Challenge Advice01-03-2013, 12:20 AM
I'm considering challenging my congressman, Joe Pitts (16th, PA) in 2014 and am interested in any opinions, advice, etc.
I can't handle having a man who has shredded his 5 term pledge (he's on his 8th) who sided with Boehner and voted to raise taxes. The man is a a faux conservative at best and I feel he should at least get some primary pressure. Any assistance is greatly appreciated! Fellow Pennsylvanians especially, let me know what you think!

Get some money...a lot of it. Press the flesh. Now. don't wait until 2014. Do you intend on challenging him in the Republican primary or are you planning on running as an independent. If it's the latter, don't bother. Independents don't have a shot so your best shot is to challenge him in the primary. It's also easier to woo potentially disgruntled Republicans than to try to woo away both Republican and Democrat voters.The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.

It never hurts to use your military backround in the campaign as a personal strength. Try to go positive as much as possible about your own qualifications and the issues that you feel strongly about-define yourself publicly before others do it.
