Is Sarah Palin Snubbing Charlie Dent?

Harrisburg, PA — With Tea Party candidate Jake Towne picking up steam across the Lehigh Valley, one can’t help but wonder if Sarah Palin is snubbing Charlie Dent tonight at her appearance in Hershey.  The former Alaska Governor and Republican Vice Presidential nominee is set to appear in Hershey for an event for the Pennsylvania Family Institute, but Charlie Dent is no where to be seen or heard, and that has Pennsylvanians wondering whether or not this is a subtle jab at Charlie and boost for Towne.
Regardless of whether or not Charlie Dent tries to hide from her, or Palin is trying to hide from him, the fact is that she’s one of the de facto leaders of the Republican Party so their game of hide-and-seek is irrelevant. Palin’s right wing Republican agenda was already once rejected by Pennsylvania and is on track to be rejected again.
“Is Charlie Dent hiding from Sarah Palin or is Sarah Palin hiding from Charlie Dent?” asked Mark Nicastre from the Pennsylvania State Democratic Party.  “Unfortunately for Charlie Dent, it doesn’t really matter; Sarah Palin’s right wing agenda was already rejected once by the Lehigh Valley and it’s going to happen again in November, regardless of whether or not he appears with her tonight in Hershey.”

Where’s Charlie Dent? Since Charlie Dent’s headquarters is only about an hour and twenty minute drive from the event, maybe he doesn’t know how to get there? Or maybe he’s really being snubbed in favor of Jake Towne? Either way, we’ve included directions here:

One thought on “Is Sarah Palin Snubbing Charlie Dent?”

    For the 100th time….

    Jake Towne is NOT THE TEA PARTY CANDIDATE in PA’s 15th Congressional district.

    Let me say it again – JAKE TOWNE IS NOT THE TEA PARTY CANDIDATE IN PA’S 15TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT.

    There IS no “tea party candidate” in the Lehigh Valley. The Lehigh Valley Tea Party group, the largest in Pennsylvania, DOES NOT ENDORSE candidates – or oppose them, for that matter.

    We are a non-partisan, non-political educational not-for-profit, focused on Constitutionally limited government, reduced spending, and directing the power of informed citizens to force their elected officials to represent them in an honest and transparent fashion.

    Because Jake Towne is a member of the local group, he has been falsely characterized as the tea party candidate. If he’s the one making the claim, he’s being dishonest. We know that Charlie Dent’s democrat opponent has sent out press released identifying Towne as the tea party candidate in an effort to pull support from Dent (I assume.)

    So, once again – JAKE TOWNE IS NOT THE TEA PARTY CANDIDATE.

    For more information on the Lehigh Valley group, visit our website at http://www.lehighvalleyteaparty.org.

    This week, we have an information booth at the Allentown Fair, in the Farmer’s Market building, where people can get voter registration forms and pocket constitutions. But there are NOT political materials available and there will be no candidates on hand.
