NRCC launches Lentz attack ad

The National Republican Congressional Committee recently launched an attack ad against Bryan Lentz, the Democratic candidate in the 7th Congressional District race.

“Bryan Lentz’s bad choices have piled up job-killing debt, increased taxes and resulted in reckless spending.  With a record like this, it’s no wonder Speaker Pelosi wants him in Congress," said Tory Mazzola, spokesman of the committee. "It’s clear that he’d be a party-line vote on items like the trillion-dollar stimulus and government-run healthcare. Voters in southeastern Pennsylvania know that they don’t need this Harrisburg politician in Washington making more bad choices.”

The Lentz campaign argued that the ad cited an editorial that ran in a publication serving central Pennsylvania counties. The editorial criticized the state budget that included spending increases that went toward education, according to the Lentz campaign.

"I don't know why Pat Meehan and the NRCC think that a publication that serves York, Cumberland and Dauphin counties knows what's better for the residents of Delaware, Chester and Montgomery counties than our local newspapers do,” said Kevin McTigue, Lentz's campaign manager, in a statement. "Maybe they think we should also ask the editorial boards of Central Pennsylvania for their opinion on what to do about the congestion at the Philadelphia International Airport, and how the Delaware County Council is doing.”
