Independence Hall T.P. Goes with Smith

Filed under: Pols on the Street |

The Independence Hall Tea Party PAC, the tri-state (Del.-N.J.-Pa.) regional group, announced its Board of Delegates has voted overwhelmingly to endorse Republican Tom Smith of Western Pennsylvania for the US Senate seat currently held by Bob Casey (D-Pa.).

“Defeating Bob Casey is a major priority for our PAC,” said PAC President Don Adams. “Among the four conservatives in the race, Tom Smith is the one candidate who can unite the various factions in the Republican Party while still appealing to Reagan Democrats and Independents.”

Adams added, “He is a successful business owner, devoted family man, and longtime contributor to conservative causes.”

In a recent conservative-sponsored poll, Smith had 25.7% to Sam Rohrer’s 17.9%. Other candidates’ numbers were: David Christian – 4.3%, Steven Welch – 2.2%, Marc Scaringi – 1.7%, Not Sure – 48.2%.

In another poll, Franklin & Marshall showed Smith with a narrow lead of 9%. Due to TV in some areas of the state, Smith seems to have caught up to Rohrer in name ID. Rohrer is well known among Pennsylvania conservatives for his gubernatorial bid in 2010.

The five appeared last night to a capacity crowd at the Union League moderated by Dom Giordano and sponsored by Republicans.
