    The above comments about Chester County Chair Vaughn are so incredibly inappropriate in this forum. You should be ashamed. Congratulations to Josh on his nomination.

    Vaughan’s imcompetence is legendary.vaughan’s support of anyone has such repellance that in this case a convicted drunk driver wins just because vaughan supported someone else.
    Will Vaughan surrender to the chesco dems her secret stash of political funds vaughan conned out of mccord?

  3. Insider says:

    The real winners in this race besides Josh Maxwell are the members of the Democratic Committee that supported the ENDORSED candidate, Josh Maxwell. The real loser in the race is Chester County Chairwoman, Michele Vaughn. She supported the un-endorsed candidate, Josh Young, and lost big time. Her other candidate, Rob McCord, came in a distant second in Chester County and almost third. It seems that every candidate Michele Vaughn endorses! Thank God her reign is coming to an end!
