Please leave your thoughts about Leach here:President Harry Truman was a smart guy. He once said, "Given the choice between a Republican and someone who acts like a Republican, people will vote for the real Republican all the time."
He was right. Truman sought to represent the Democratic wing of the Democratic Party. And he understood a basic fact of political life. In politics, if you believe in nothing, you'll fall for anything.
All too often, when Democratic leaders make plans to recruit Democratic candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives, their strategy is to find candidates who believe in nothing.
When one of these candidates was asked about immigration and tax policy, what was his answer, stated in a prominent national newspaper?
"Certainly I have a lot of research to do."
Recruiting know-nothings might be their plan, but it's not our plan.
We will be finding True Blue DEMOCRATS, and electing them.I think I've found one, by the name of Daylin Leach. He's a current member of the Pennsylvania Senate, and he's running for the 13th Congressional District in your fine state. But before I decide to endorse him, I'd like to hear what you have to say about him. So please, send me your thoughts on Daylin. You can reply to this e-mail with your comments, or just go to this web site and submit your comments there:
If you don't know him, that's fine. You can just send me your favorite quote by a Democrat. But if you do know him, let me know what you think about the guy:
Because we're all in this together.
Congressman Alan Grayson
PS. Please share Harry Truman's quote on Facebook or Twitter.
Daylin is running in a safe blue district but in a crowded primary. He's been called Pennsylvania's Liberal Lion for his staunch positions against tracking and Governor Corbett's draconian budget. Leach is also strong ally for unions, the middle-class, LGBT, and has been pushing to legalize marijuana in Pennsylvania. If you would like to learn more about Daylin Leach, please go here:
