    It will be great to get rid of Brady and his gerrymandering of most of the Democratic base in Delco to Philly. He might be a good county chair, but he is a horrible representative

  2. Overbrook Oldie says:

    Bob Brady was a guy who chased the blacks out of neighborhood for many years with his boy Popeye and friends. Then the hypocrite bully plays 2-face today. What a sham. Big mouth favor mongrul. #makephillygreatagain Retire Bob ! Go hang out at Johhny’s Place

    YES! Finally some fresh ideas and an ability to clean up the old boys network.

  4. Jake Margerum says:

    Congressman Brady has been a good, old fashioned, representative and worked hard for the city but times have changed. People don’t want “machine” politics any more. There is a rising movement to open the primaries and another to set term limits to change the political culture. I appreciate all he has done but it is time for him to retire and let the next generation take office.

    If she is anything like Kenny and his sanctuary city illegalities, then she is a loser.

  6. David Diano says:

    It will be nice to have a Congressman with more education than a High School diploma from 1963.

    Nina has a PhD in Chemistry and a post-Doc in Molecular Genetics. Given the GOP war on science, we need highly educated Dems to combat them.

  7. Zakrey Bissell says:

    I think for Bob Brady might announce a retirement in 2018.

  8. David Diano says:

    The smart move is to keep this a two person race, or to bring in a third candidate who draws from Brady’s base.

  9. Lila James says:

    I am sure by the end there will be a long list which will include other Kenney Loyalists. The more the merrier for Brady

  10. Michael E. Bell says:

    This is great news. No more waiting for hand picked leaders.
