Holy Moly, Fetterman Won!

Hold on to your seats, sports fans, this story may have meaning.

Yesterday, John Fetterman, 6’10” (I’m guessing) mayor of Braddock, PA, won the Democratic primary for Lieutenant Governor of Pennsylvania.

Why does this have meaning?

Because John Fetterman is one of those iconoclastic Democratic candidates that we all go gaga about. He is a real community activist. He’s into urban renewal and medical marijuana. He lives the working class


You will never catch him in a suit.

The dude screams laid back.

He’s also got a f*cking hot Brazilian wife, Gisele, and three adorable kids. He lives in an old car dealership.

Yeah, weird, huh?

He’ll be running with our governor, The steadfast, unflinching Tom Wolf. This will be one to watch because the PA state legislature is definitely redder than red hardass Republican. But Fetterman has the appearance of a bouncer, only nicer. And cooler.

I have two candidates to campaign for this fall. Conor Lamb won last night as well.

The good news just keeps on coming. Seven women won their primaries in the newly drawn congressional district maps.

This fall should give the media a whole new perspective on Pennsylvania. 2016 was an brief regression on the way to something else. We are the vanguard.
