Reader Poll: Who Do You Believe Will Be the PA-8 GOP Nominee in 2016?

PA-8Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick made it clear beforehand that 2014 would be his last election contest.

Despite that, however, the GOP has yet to fully coalesce behind one candidate.

State Representative Scott Petri finally launched his formal campaign this week. He has been circling the race for awhile and is generally seen as the front-runner and party choice.

Nonetheless, former Bucks County Commissioner Andrew Warren is running in the GOP primary as well.

Since we ran a similar poll about the Democratic primary in January, we decided to make one about the Republican contest.

So, dear readers, what do you think?

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

    I don’t think you’ll be able to buy this election.

  2. BucksVoter says:

    Petri will most likely have the fund-raising advantage, but could still lose if voters retain the anti-Washington mantra in 2016. Petri’s biggest opponent is Trump.

  3. Andy Warren Campaign says:

    Thank you to all who voted in Politics PA poll!

    To get the latest updates from my campaign please follow me on Twitter @WarrenForBucks

    Have a safe and enjoyable Holiday Season,

    Refusing money from outside of the district? I won’t say it’s impossible, but good luck with that.

  5. Lois Herr says:

    Doesn’t matter because Shaughnessy will win.

  6. rsklaroff says:

    …and this compares with the possibility that, by January, Scott will have raised ~$300K.

  7. PA Dem says:

    Is Warren even a serious candidate? 12k cash on hand as of 9/30…

    @ Visco:

    The credibility of your encomium is warped by your coda [“A passing flirtation with the other party is no sin. Think Ronald Reagan, Bill Bennett, Michael Medved, Dennis Prager] because the examples didn’t befit his behavior; they are all conservatives [of varying levels of commitment] and–basically–left the Dem Party, never to return.

  9. Anthony Visco says:

    Andy Warren is the person for the job. Honest with both character and govt. experience. Andy will keep his word. I
    know because I worked with him as County Labor Solicitor when Andy
    was Chair of the Bd. of Commissioners. He was fiscally
    responsible in matters of government expenditures, but also wanted
    County employees to be treated fairly. A passing flirtation with
    the other party is no sin. Think Ronald Reagan, Bill Bennett,
    Michael Medved, Dennis Prager, etc., etc.

    @ Joe W:

    I’ve been told that Warren’s expertise is limited to encyclopedic knowledge of county government; is there any evidence he has expanded to the state/federal/national levels?

  11. Joe W says:

    Andy Warren is easily the best candidate in the field. He is the most experienced and REFUSES to take money from any special interests outside of the 8th District. A great man with great character who seems to want to get things done. He gets my vote and would be SHOCKED if Petri got the nomination.

  12. rsklaroff says:

    Scott had broad-based support within the party, both locally and @ Harrisburg; it is richly deserved, based upon awareness of his awareness of proper GOP principles.

  13. PhillyPolitico says:

    The Republicans will not nominate someone who ran as a Democrat.

  14. Alan Kennedy Shaffer says:

    I think it will be the guy that always looks like he is dropping a deuce, Petri.
