“Smart, disciplined and independent, Marty will bring a champion’s drive and determination to Congress. He has already proven himself as a conservative problem-solver on the Lehigh County Board of Commissioners, and his skills in both business and the non-profit sector mark him as the best among a new generation of leaders in our region,” Martin said in a release announcing the endorsement.
The endorsement from Martin, who is well liked throughout Lehigh county, helps Nothstein show potential donors that support from officials within Lehigh county that fellow candidate state Rep. Ryan Mackenzie (R-Lehigh) has gotten all of the support from officials. This is especially important after state Rep. Justin Simmons (R-Lehigh) exited the race.
Nothstein said he is “humbled and honored to have the steadfast support and strong endorsement from District Attorney Martin for our campaign for Congress. Most importantly, I look forward to seeing him on the campaign trail and benefiting from his counsel.”
Dauphin county Commissioner Mike Pries, and Former CIA officer Scott Uehlinger are also running for the Republican nomination.
