Americans for Limited Government and Phyllis Schlafly Eagles Target Dent
Americans for Limited Government and Phyllis Schlafly Eagles, two pro-Trump conservative groups, are planning a protest of Congressman Charlie Dent (R-Lehigh) in Allentown this Friday saying Dent is blocking President Trump’s agenda.
“For all intents and purposes Dent is a member of the Democratic Caucus,” Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning told Breitbart.
“Charlie Dent’s career has been nothing more than a laundry list of abject surrender to the liberal Democrats,” Ed Martin of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles said in a press release.
The groups are taking issue with Dent and the Tuesday group who have been pushing for bi-partisan work on issues like healthcare, tax reform, and the budget.
Dent says he is doing what he was elected to do.
“There are some people who expect me to be a sycophant, and that’s not going to happen. I know I’m very much in touch with the people of the 15th Congressional District,” Dent told the Morning Call.
Trump won the district in 2016 by 7 points, while Dent won by 20 points.
