Primary Election Results Good for NRA

We had one endorsed candidate in the Pennsylvania primary yesterday, who did very well.  Congratulations to NRA-PVF endorsed candidate Judge Joan Orie Melvin.  NRA doesn’t typically endorse in primaries, but in this case, it seems to have paid off:

ORIE MELVIN, JOAN (REP) 264,535 55.7%
PANEPINTO, PAUL P. (REP) 82,279 17.3%
ALLEN, CHERYL LYNN (REP) 127,819 26.9%

Winning a comfortable majority in a three way race is pretty impressive.  I understand why NRA is leery of endorsing in primary races, but pretty clearly in primaries their endorsement carries some weight.

  1. 3 votes from my family advanced that overwhelming Melvin total!!

    On the other side, more local, the FOAC doesn’t have the clout down here in Delaware County. Mike Boyle was the FOAC endorsed candidate and MIGHT have an outside chance of a Democratic write in slot in November.

    “In the sheriff’s race, incumbent Joseph McGinn, 59, of Linwood, secured his spot on the Republican ballot with 20,031 votes to challenger Michael Boyle’s 9,847.

    No Democrat was running for sheriff, but there were 596 write-ins on the Democratic ticket, with most of the votes tabulated. That means Boyle, 49, of Upper Darby, could still be on the ballot in November, if he was able to reach the threshold of 250 votes and garnered more write-ins than McGinn.” Daily Times .

    He might have done better if his name was Susan Boyle?
