 Representative Justin Simmons will primary turncoat Charlie Dent

                Dent has gone off the political rails, continues to side with Pelosi while undermining Republican policies.

 

 (Coopersburg, PA)  – Justin Simmons, the conservative Republican legislator, officially declared his candidacy against longtime liberal Congressman Charlie Dent.   Simmons has received substantial positive feedback since his public pronouncement about possibly challenging Dent last week.  As a result, Simmons is taking the next step by declaring his candidacy today through a video on his website: SimmonsNotDent.com

“Like many Republicans, I used to support Charlie Dent.  But in the past year, Charlie Dent has completely gone off the rails.  Dent has been on the wrong side of every major issue from ObamaCare, spending, border security and the list goes on. ”  Simmons explains.

“His actions don’t stop with a simple NO vote. Dent spends most of his efforts conspiring with Democrats to undermine the Republicans in Congress and the President. Charlie Dent now sides more with Nancy Pelosi than with the Republican voters who sent him there. ”

“I have a proven conservative record of fighting for limited government. Republicans deserve a new conservative voice committed to repealing the failed polices of the Obama era and support common-sense conservative policies voters sent Republicans to pass. I intend to give them that new voice.”

“I will not be seeking reelection to the Pennsylvania House.  I’m running regardless of how many other candidates may enter or leave this race.  I am 110% committed until the end and look forward to connecting with the voters in 15th District. ” Simmons concludes.

The 15th Congressional district covers Lehigh county and parts of Northampton, Berks, Lebanon and Dauphin counties.
