Citizens for Constitutional Government held a Contested Primaries Candidate Night at our April 8th meeting. Republican candidates for Congress in the 8th and 13th Congressional districts, candidates for Governor, and candidates for Bucks and Montgomery County Republican State Committees were invited. Candidates in the Republican Primary for U.S. Congress in the 13th district (currently held by Allyson Schwartz) included two fiscal and social conservatives – Beverly Plosa-Bowser, a retired Air Force Colonel, as well as Dee Adcock, Montgomery County businessman, who was out of town and represented by his son, Carson Adcock. Bob Guzzardi, businessman and fiscal conservative, spoke about his campaign for Governor in the Republican primary against Gov. Tom Corbett who was asked to send a representative but did not do so. Six candidates running for Bucks County Republican State Committee were present including long-time incumbent Judy Guise who explained the purpose and duties of the State Committee. Jimmy Clendennen, Jay Russell, and Dan Snyder (incumbent) are running as independent, unendorsed, liberty candidates. Judy Guise, Tom Panzer, and George Draginis(represented by Don Petrille) are part of a slate of 15 candidates endorsed by the Bucks County Republican Committee which can be found at the website bucksgop.com. Candidates for Montgomery County State Committee were unavailable.
Please watch the video of the meeting at www.CCG-PA.org to cast an informed vote in the Primay on May 20th, and please pass this on to others (especially those in the 13th Congressional district). You can also go to the candidates’ websites for additional information as follows:
Is it fair to taxpayers to use their money to take money from government employees and give it to private organizations (unions) to promote their one-sided political agenda?
Is it fair to government employees to take money off the top of their paychecks without their consent, without giving them the opportunity to choose whether or not to use their money to fund the unions which support a political agenda which does not represent many of those employees?

You defeated the Obama Administration’s effort to monitor America’s newsrooms.
On Wednesday we launched a public campaign against the Obama Administration’s “study” of American newsrooms, a “study” that would send government monitors into Christian and conservative stations.
Can you imagine? Government monitors asking Christian broadcasters if they’re giving you the news the Obama Administration says you “need” to hear?
It was intolerable, and within two days of launching our campaign, tens of thousands signed our petition, Members of Congress confronted the FCC, and the Obama Administration’s threats to the free press were national news.
Yesterday afternoon the Administration surrendered, ending the study and promising not to monitor station owners, managers, and reporters. It was a complete victory.
But that was not our only victory this week. All the way across the globe, we successfully defended persecuted Christians in Pakistan. The European Centre for Law and Justice won a victory for two Pakistani Christians falsely accused of murder charges. Read their story.
