SD-6: Rose Outlines Crisp Agenda in Opening Ad (VIDEO)

Challenger Kim Rose wasted no time linking incumbent Tommy Tomlinson (R-Bucks) to the increasingly unpopular Governor Corbett.

“I’ll vote to reverse the Corbett, Tomlinson billion dollar cuts to education spending,” declares Rose, staying on similar message with fellow Senate hopefuls SD-26 nominee John Kane and SD-32 nominee Deb Kula.

The spot, entitled “I’ll Look Out for You,” seeks to portray Rose as disconnected from Harrisburg while concurrently outlining her agenda.

“[I’ll] make gas companies drilling in the Marcellus Shale pay their fair share, protect a woman’s right to choose…and job creation is priority one,” she states.

This race is certainly one to watch as Democrats seek to gain a majority in the State Senate, where Republicans currently hold a 27-23 advantage.

SD-6 lies in Democratic-leaning Bucks County. Redistricted in 2010, the area gives Dems a 49% to 38% voter registration edge and leans left in statewide and federal races with a Democratic Performance Index (DPI) of 56%.

Tomlinson, 68, has held the seat since 1995. He cruised to re-election by 16 points in 2010 and won by 7 points in the Democratic wave year of 2006.

  1. This district went for Obama in 2012. Tomlinson has voted with Corbett 100% of the time and is responsible for voting for increased Pensions for himself and government workers in 2002 and has done nothing to reform the pension crisis striking municipalities throughout the state as well as state budget itself.

    Tomlinson votes like a Democrat and promotes Democratic policies. Maybe SD 6 Democrats will vote for the Democrat.

    Independents must be sick of Corbett/Tomlinson, too. I have to think that Corbett’s coattails are dragging Tomlinson down.

  2. She’s a joke of a supervisor and only a drunk would promote her to senate. The people of Northampton just voted her friends out of office because of the poor job they did under her leadership and now she wants a promotion? Just watch how she acts at supervisors meetings. She can barely read let alone legislate. Maybe she should be true to the voters who elected her supervisor and finish one term at least before her ego demands she run for another.
