Challenger Kim Rose wasted no time linking incumbent Tommy Tomlinson (R-Bucks) to the increasingly unpopular Governor Corbett.
“I’ll vote to reverse the Corbett, Tomlinson billion dollar cuts to education spending,” declares Rose, staying on similar message with fellow Senate hopefuls SD-26 nominee John Kane and SD-32 nominee Deb Kula.
The spot, entitled “I’ll Look Out for You,” seeks to portray Rose as disconnected from Harrisburg while concurrently outlining her agenda.
“[I’ll] make gas companies drilling in the Marcellus Shale pay their fair share, protect a woman’s right to choose…and job creation is priority one,” she states.
This race is certainly one to watch as Democrats seek to gain a majority in the State Senate, where Republicans currently hold a 27-23 advantage.
SD-6 lies in Democratic-leaning Bucks County. Redistricted in 2010, the area gives Dems a 49% to 38% voter registration edge and leans left in statewide and federal races with a Democratic Performance Index (DPI) of 56%.
Tomlinson, 68, has held the seat since 1995. He cruised to re-election by 16 points in 2010 and won by 7 points in the Democratic wave year of 2006.
