After years as head of the local Democratic party, Congressman Bob Brady (D-Pa.) knows when to avoid a needless fight. That’s what he has done with the party’s decision not to endorse any of the mayoral candidates.
All six of the democratic candidates are on Twitter but some are more active than others.
A forum for the six Democratic mayoral candidates was held at Community College of Philadelphia Thursday night.
Kenney, who is white, nabbed the endorsement of a group of African-American political leaders known as the Northwest Coalition over rival Anthony Wiliams, who is black.
The questions, from Central’s Class 274, covered a wide variety of issues.
The poll was conducted by a Washington-based firm called “The Mellman Group” on behalf of Lynne Abraham.
The first television ad of the 2015 Philadelphia mayoral race is now airing, but it was not paid for by the candidate who is being promoted.
The six candidates vying for the Democratic nomination for Philadelphia mayor took part in a forum hosted by the Business Association of West Parkside.
The “Kenney for Mayor” campaign kicked off by renting the mayor’s reception room and then packing it with supporters.
Senator Anthony Williams had $426,000 still on hand at the end of 2014, the largest cash-on-hand total of all the announced and presumptive candidates.
Kenney –- first elected in 1991 — choked up at times as he bid his fellow councilmembers farewell.
“There are enough people running that people can make a wise choice,” he said.
Kenney spent much of today holed up in his City Council office, making what an aide described as “personal calls.”
“Bunch of e-mails, bunch of phone calls, wanting to know if I was announcing that I was getting back in the race,” he began.
Councilman Jim Kenney was fuming that Gov. Christie sat with the owner of the Dallas Cowboys at Lincoln Financial Field during Sunday night’s Eagles game.
