PA-10: Independent Troiano Announces Campaign Endorsements

nick-troianoThe twenty-five year old candidate for PA’s 10th congressional district is accumulating a list of supporters on the local, state and federal level.

Among those backing Troiano is Phil Scollo, the 2012 Democratic nominee for the set.

“Nick Troiano is on his way to becoming our next U.S. Representative and I am proud to announce my full support and endorsement of his candidacy,” Scollo said. “Nick has the energy, enthusiasm, and ideas to be a truly great representative of our community and is the only viable alternative to Tom Marino, who epitomizes Washington ineptitude and gridlock.”

Scollo was trounced in 2012 by incumbent Rep. Tom Marino who received 168,024 votes (66%) compared to the Democrat’s 87,096 votes (34%). A March JMC Analytics poll that the campaign has touted, however, showed 76% of voters were open to supporting an independent candidate against Marino.

Troiano’s Mayors Council now includes the support of 21 mayors, which includes eight Democrats and thirteen Republicans from 11 different countries in the 10th Congressional District. The council supports the candidate in their communities and advises the Troiano campaign regarding specific local issues.

Thirteen-year Republican Mayor of Montgomery, Andy Onufrak announced his support by issuing a statement of collectiveness, “we might be from different places and different parties, but we all agree that Nick Troiano is a breath of fresh air to our community and is best positioned to represent us in Washington.”

The Independent candidate has already shown an affinity for a fresh direction by completing a fifteen county “back to the future” tour in July.

  1. Good to hear he’s pulling R votes from Marino. That’ll help the TRUE candidate with a better message, Scott Brion. Marino is a huge part of the Do-Nothing Congress, and needs to go.

  2. Why is Phil Scollo’s support for Nick news? Phil is a former Chair of the Pike County Democrats and nearly everyone who is suppprting Nick on Pike County are Dems even though Nick claims that he is a conservative.

    Why isn’t anyone asking why no prominent Republicans or elected officials from Pike County, the county where Nick lives with his parents, are supporting him? It’s interesting to see that the people who know Nick best won’t support him. Perhaps PoliticsPA should find out why instead of just posting Nick’s press releases.

  3. Phil Scollo made Marino spend $750,000 that otherwise would have gone to other RNCC races. We play everywhere and we can win. This is a case-study I like to use.
