Margolies Relives Glory Day in Web Video (With Video)
The battle to replace Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz, who is running for Governor, continues to heat up.
Marjorie Margolies, vying in the PA-13 Democratic primary, released a web video ad Monday that focusing on the 20th anniversary of her tie-breaking vote to pass the 1993 Clinton budget on August 5, 1993.
“I was not sent to Washington to back down from the tough issues then and I won’t back down from them now,” Margolies said in a press release.
Margolies served one term in Congress from 1993 to 1995. She was then defeated in her bid for re-election in 1994 by Republican Jon Fox.
When she ran in the 1990s, PA-13 was a swing district. Now, in a heavily Democratic district, Margolies is seeking to return to her old job.
As of now, four candidates are in contention for the nod in PA-13: Margolies, State Sen. Daylin Leach (D-Montco), State Rep. Brendan Boyle (D-Phila), and physician and health care activist Valerie Arkoosh.
