  1. Guy would be a good state candidate…10 years ago. As it stands now, he isn’t radical enough to attract the diehard R’s and isn’t moderate enough to attract any D’s. Early in the pandemic his ‘grassroots campaign’ bought a billboard on Route 30 saying COVID restrictions needed to stop and communities reopen “so that our kids can play little league.” He has signs that say ‘vote for coach guy.’ When your target demographic is the white wealthy little league parent demographic, shows you’re more than a little misguided.

  2. Guy has turned out to be a terribly poor candidate. Houlahan is no moderate- but she is a hard worker. Unlike Costello and others she is not weak. Shameful, republicans can’t give voters a decent alternative. Republicans in Chester County worst party hacks I have seen in several states. Guy as a candidate was terrible

  3. Look at the fundraising and expenditures. Look at D Plus 12 advantage. Tells you the winner.

  4. -Finding common ground in our state to reduce the number of abortions
    -Instituting voter ID; clarifying the rules on absentee/mail-in voting
    -Allow children to attend the school of their parent’s choice
    Does Guy know he is seeking a federal office? The above issues are state issues, not federal issues.
