PA11 Candidate Forum Cancelled Due to “Unforeseeable” Views of Candidates
“Due to the unforeseeable actions and views of a few candidates, the Council has determined that the forum can not safely and appropriately take place as originally scheduled,” the council wrote in a statement to PoliticsPA.
“It is regrettable that the actions and views of a few have denied the remaining candidates a forum to meet with voters to share their message and candidacy.”
On Tuesday, Lewis announced he would not be attending the event over the invitation over the invitation of Donahue.
“It has come to my attention that the DCCRW has invited Sean Donahue, an individual who holds anti-Semitic, pro-segregationist, and white-supremacist views and values to speak alongside other candidates at a Republican candidate forum this upcoming Saturday,” Lewis said.
