From The Philadelphia Inquirer editorial:
In the 17th District, comprising portions of Montgomery and Delaware Counties, the retirement of Democratic Sen. Constance Williams has created an open seat.The 17th Senate District includes Bridgeport, Conshohocken, East Norriton, Lower Merion, Narberth, Norristown, Plymouth, Upper Merion and West Conshohocken in Montgomery County and Haverford and Radnor in Delaware County.
The Republican candidate is Lance Rogers, 34, a Lower Merion commissioner and media attorney (disclosure: he has worked on cases for The Inquirer). The Democrat is State Rep. Daylin Leach, 47, a progressive who has been active in government reform efforts and sponsored the law to foster expanded screening for breast cancer.
Our endorsement goes to LANCE ROGERS. He could bring a fresh approach to the Senate on issues such as gun control and expanded health-care coverage, on which he pledges not to walk lock-step with the GOP.
