Premier of New Campaign Commercial

We stayed on the issues and went low key. The understated piano music was my idea after John Cougar Mellencamp's lawyers complained about us using Hurt So Good as a campaign song.

Voices of the 54th District - Ground Zero Mosque

The best thing about the Heritage Valley Corn Dog Festival is that I got to talk with so many great people from my district. One thing I asked them about was the attempt to President Obama and others to build a mosque at Ground Zero in New York. I was thrilled to see that while, people in the district were against the mosque, they weren't against Muslims. They realized that half the Muslims in this country are good people and only asked that no new Mosque be built in the same state as such a horrendous tragedy.

In addition to the action on the main stage, there will be a number of attractions for the whole family from face painting to a minstrel show. There are some conservative organizations that I am no stranger too. You may find him chomping down on some delicious fetus cookies at the Right to Life Booth or sampling some anti-wedding cake at the Defense of Marriage Booth. The National Rifle Association and Robert Baird society are here to tell you of a vast conspiracy to take away your guns and turn this country communist respectively. Look for the Heritage Valley Minutemen to stage another illegal alien roundup for the kids. It's fun for the whole family. I hope to see you there.
