Welch Talks Founding Fathers, Economy in New Web Video

By Keegan Gibson, Managing Editor

Steve Welch is talking straight to conservatives in his latest web video. The Chester County entrepreneur leads off by saying that the Obama administration has governed in a way very different from the founding fathers’ intent.

“This administration has had a huge lurch to the left. We are a society that has gone from historically having a relatively limited, decentralized government to in the last couple years a huge massive expansion in the size of government and the increase of role and regulation of government.  And, that’s a direct conflict for what our founding fathers believed,” Welch says.

He segues into a discussion of how, he says, the trend is hurting the economy.

Welch’s campaign has produced several videos thus far, including a memorable faux documentary that accuses Senator Bob Casey and President Barack Obama of being “separated at birth.”

He knows that he must establish his conservative bona fides as early as possible. Republican state committee has its endorsement meeting on January 28th, and a few dozen conservative committee members will move to have an open primary. After that measure fails, they will be looking for a candidate to support.

Welch boasts that he has attended every campaign event thus far – every meet and greet, debate, and forum. And he’s faithfully executed the standard state committee playbook: call, meet and woo committee members.

In the mean time, his opponents know that he has the inside track to the endorsement, along with 2010 congressional candidate Tim Burns of Washington County. (There are also many who believe no candidate will muster the votes for an endorsement).  Though the campaign has been civil thus far, the fists will begin to fly in the coming days.
