Ravenstahl & Readshaw Send Identical Campaign Lit
Apparently both candidates have a strong education plan, as they sent out identical mailers in their nearby districts. (Hat tip to 2 Political Junkies & Keystone Politics who ran this picture yesterday)
The mail piece features the exact same picture and very similar* text with just the name of the representative changed.
It’s not unusual for an organization like the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee to send out identical emails with the name of the Republican opponent changed, but to send the exact same piece of direct mail to two State House seats right next to each other seems a bit lazy.
They both face tough competitors. Readshaw is running against fellow incumbent Rep. Erin Molchany after redistricting moved her seat to Lehigh County and bumped her into Readshaw’s. Ravenstahl faces Tom Michalow, a public school teacher and former member of Avalon council. Ravenstahl has held the seat since 2010.
