State Representative Scott Petri has officially announced his run for Congress.
“I’m Scott Petri and I’m running for Congress to represent us in Washington,” he states. “We have a certain way of looking at things, it’s called common sense. It’s what most of us use to solve problems. For some reason, in Washington, common sense seems to be few and far between.”
In his opening video, Petri touched on everything from the economy, foreign policy, the national debt, drug addiction and political correctness.
“As a conservative, I believe it is our responsibility to be good stewards,” Petri pledges. “We must leave the campsite in better shape than we found it.”
The 8th district consists of all of Bucks County and parts of upper Montgomery County. Incumbent GOP Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick is retiring. The seat is rated R+1 and therefore is one of the most competitive congressional seats in the nation.
