“For these reasons and more, I wholeheartedly endorse Ashley Lunkenheimer.”

Lunkenheimer was thankful for the endorsement of the Chauncey.

  1. Badey has officially withdrawn and his petition to be removed from the ballot has been approved. It’s unclear if Delco/Montco/Philly will be able to remove his name, but if not, they have to post signs that he’s withdraw
    thank
    thanks

    1. My understanding is that all three counties have deliberately been holding off on printing any ballot materials because they are waiting for the results of two petition challenges in Commonwealth Court. Badey will not be appearing, and Chauncey should still be able to have her name removed.

  2. You have to be a Complete Freaking Idiot to get on a Ballot and then drop out of a Race It is so hard to get onto a Ballot you should at least do your Best to win even if its against all odds .

  3. Lindy Li will run away with this. You can’t beat her with that suitcase full of dreams!

    1. Her suitcase had only 4 endorsement votes last night (out of over 500 cast on the first round).

  4. good choice here because we need more women like her is to serve in congress in 2019.

  5. Badey has officially withdrawn and his petition to be removed from the ballot has been approved. It’s unclear if Delco/Montco/Philly will be able to remove his name, but if not, they have to post signs that he’s withdrawn.
