Voters in Pennsylvania's 7th Congressional District need to read, and TV viewers -- specifically those in range of the local broadcast network WFMZ-TV Channel 69 -- should see that Susan is the candidate with the experience and fight to stand up to Donald Trump and protect our progressive values for Lehigh Valley families. 

As the only woman in the race, Susan has a 35-year career fighting for families, against corruption, and for our progressive values.  In Congress, Susan will take on the gun lobby and stand up to the NRA to support common sense gun safety laws, she will protect a woman's right to choose and stop any efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, and she will fix our broken immigration system.  She will never vote to waste taxpayer money on Donald Trump's border wall. 

The Lehigh Valley needs a progressive leader, not conservative politician John Morganelli.  John Morganelli opposes a woman's right to choose and describes himself as pro-life, so he won't stop Republicans who want to defund Planned Parenthood.  He gave a campaign contribution to a Republican Congressman who wanted to stop nearly all immigration into America and later supported literacy tests to keep non-English speakers from voting.  Morganelli also took thousands of dollars from an organization linked to a well-known anti-immigration hate group.  

John Morganelli’s policies are so in line with Donald Trump that Morganelli has frequently tweeted his support for Trump’s policies, and even tweeted he was quote “thankful for your coming leadership” and hoped for a job in Trump’s administration.
