PA-08: Yesterday, as flood waters gathered in Bucks County, which makes up over 80% of Patrick Murphy's district, we saw the following local headlines:
- First, there was this: FLOOD WARNING ISSUED FOR BUCKS COMMUNITIES
- Then, we get this from Michael Fitzpatrick, the Republican incumbent who stayed in Washington during the flooding: a press release describing everything he has done to prevent floods.
- Now, comes this: BUCKS COUNTY ISSUES EMERGENCY DECLARATION
- And this: It's hard to imagine flooding worse than 1955
- And this: Bucks County flood roundup
PA-07: Not to be outdone, crazy Curt Weldon wants to be Indiana Jones:It's a scene out of an Indiana Jones movie - or an Indiana Jones parody:
A caravan of jeeps and heavy equipment crawls across the Iraqi desert, headed for a secret location on the banks of the Euphrates River.
Their mission: to dig 25 feet down into the riverbed and unearth concrete bunkers filled with chemical weapons produced by Saddam Hussein's regime and hidden before the outbreak of the Iraq war in 2003.
And who's that, dressed in a safari jacket and a pith helmet, supervising the dig?
None other than our own U.S. Rep. Curt Weldon (R., Pa.), leading a secret mission to unearth the Holy Grail of the war: the weapons of mass destruction that have eluded every other U.S. search team since our troops invaded three years ago.
Does this sound incredible - or ludicrous? Not to Dave Gaubatz.
Gaubatz said that Weldon intended just such an expedition over the Memorial Day weekend, until Gaubatz put the kibosh on it.
Gaubatz, who lives in Dallas, is a former Air Force special investigator who served as a civilian employee in Iraq for a number of months in 2003. That's right, Curt Weldon has personally acquired the information on where the WMD's are! He's done what 150,000 Americans were unable to do over the last three and a half years! Of course, there is no need to ask how he got the information, because the answer to that is simple. He's Curt Weldon, and that is all you need know.
Both of these districts have a partisan voting index of more than +3.0 Democratic. Considering the type of year we are having, really all Patrick Murphy needs to defeat Fitzpatrick and really all Sestak needs to defeat Weldon are the resources to get their names and message out. Whether it is your money or your volunteer hours, you can give them those resources on the combined Act Blue page.
