 Swann Donated to Kerry in '97

PoliticsPA has learned that likely GOP Gubernatorial candidate Lynn Swann donated at least three times to Senator John Kerry's re-election campaign in 1996 and 1997.  Swann has otherwise been a frequent contributor to Republican campaigns since the 1980's.

Oh, I hope Scranton and Piccola make this an issue in the primary!

Yeah I'm not thrilled about it and he also gave to Specter.

However, if Piccola and Scranton want to make this an issue, Swann can show every Republican the pictures of him campaigning for the President. He is the President's Director of the Council on Physical Fitness.

I have only recently gotten involved in any national politics (thanks to my Vice President), and now am looking into the Pennsylvania Gubernatorial race where it looks like Swann is quite an electable man who could be Governor Rendell. I see that the PA Dems are afraid of Swann, and they are pulling out insignifigant crud like this to discredit him.

Actually the PA Dems are so confident that Rendell can pretty much beat anyone but they'll be in for a big surprise. I'd say they would be most concerned about Swann though.

Also, I forgot to add, that his primary opponents, two rather liberal Republicans, are the ones bringing this up. They must forget all the campaigning Swann did for the President here and the fact that he heads the President's Fitness Council. Also, I'm sure Swann will show this picture a few times during the campaign...

No he isn't. Swann is clearly the most conservative. Piccola has been seen as a RINO by many.

We don't even know where Swann is politically. We do know that he supported Specter and gave money to John Kerry.  Piccola has spearheaded the opposition to just about every Rendell initiative in the state senate.

Scranton might as well be a Democrat and Piccola is the model of a Specter Republican.  Swann is obviously the best choice.

Piccola has actually supported Rendell spending proposals. Also, when it comes to where Swann stands, we do know this...  http://www.grassrootspa.com/2005/01/swann-pro-life-pro-gun-anti-tax-pro.html

He was in favor of abortion rights but happened to switch a few months ago. His voting record is still seen as a Pro Choice record.

Oh no, according to Piccola he's been pro-life for years. Smiley

He's just a political opportunist like Santorum, except Santorum seems to have stronger core beliefs. Every time he runs for re-election, he runs to the left and plays himself as a moderate. His district does after all include the city of Harrisburg and the area around it which is very liberal. As an incumbent he's tough to beat because he can raise money very well, but he knows he's somewhat vulnerable.

The point - Suddenly when there's a race between two Pro Choice candidates (at the time Swann wasn't really in the race yet) Piccola saw that voters wouldn't see much of a difference between the two and would probably go with the more well known candidate (Scranton). Therefore, to attract the strong Pro Life vote, he suddenly thought about his position on the issue again and became "Pro Life."

Why do you get so angry? You must have some temper problems.

Anyway, I have never said Jeff Piccola has been Pro Life for years. Never. You must have been talking to someone else.
