  1. It will be great to get rid of Brady and his gerrymandering of most of the Democratic base in Delco to Philly. He might be a good county chair, but he is a horrible representative

  2. Bob Brady was a guy who chased the blacks out of neighborhood for many years with his boy Popeye and friends. Then the hypocrite bully plays 2-face today. What a sham. Big mouth favor mongrul. #makephillygreatagain Retire Bob ! Go hang out at Johhny’s Place

  3. Congressman Brady has been a good, old fashioned, representative and worked hard for the city but times have changed. People don’t want “machine” politics any more. There is a rising movement to open the primaries and another to set term limits to change the political culture. I appreciate all he has done but it is time for him to retire and let the next generation take office.

  4. It will be nice to have a Congressman with more education than a High School diploma from 1963.

    Nina has a PhD in Chemistry and a post-Doc in Molecular Genetics. Given the GOP war on science, we need highly educated Dems to combat them.

  5. The smart move is to keep this a two person race, or to bring in a third candidate who draws from Brady’s base.

  6. I am sure by the end there will be a long list which will include other Kenney Loyalists. The more the merrier for Brady
