Forget Swing States: The Presidential Election Will Be Determined by 20 Swing Counties in Linchpin States

Leaning red and blue, pondering whether to vote.

Americans have heard that the election of the next president will be determined by a few battleground states, with Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania as 2016’s leading examples. But what if it’s not simply a handful of swing states but swing counties, with less than 500,000 swing voters, that truly matters?

Schultz co-edited a book on swing states and now predicts fewer than 20 counties will tip the balance to pick the next president.

Where are 2016’s deciders? In Ohio, it’s Hamilton County, home to Cincinnati. In Pennsylvania, it’s Bucks and Chester Counties, to the north and south of Philadelphia. It’s also Lackawanna and Luzerne Counties, straddling Scranton and Wilkes Barre in its western interior….

Protecting Open Space and Our Environment

by Susan Rzucidlo, Dem candidate for PA House 158

The magnificent open spaces in Chester County have always made ours, one of the most beautiful counties in the state; though I may be a bit biased.  Because of our great open spaces, we have a strong commitment in Chester County to protect our environment.

That is why I am so honored to have received the endorsements of:

– The Sierra Club of Pennsylvania
– Clean Water Action 

Preserving Open Space and protecting our environment has been a priority in Chester County that has proven to be a valuable investment in our future. Protecting and saving our open spaces:

– Improves our environment
– Encourages agricultural endeavors
– Improves storm water management
– Reduces the cost of public infrastructure and programs which lessen the need for property tax increases
– Supports industries that generate billions of dollars in economic activity annually

I hope that you will donate to my campaign so that I can work to help protect our environment and open spaces.

If you’d rather mail a donation, please send a check to Friends of Susan Rzucidlo, P.O. Box 581, Landenberg PA 19350

Please share this with your environmentally concerned friends and fellow voters.  Thank you
