MoveOn endorses Badey in the 7th

A political action committee endorsed Democrat George Badey, who is running against incumbent U.S. Rep. Pat Meehan, R-7, of Upper Darby.

In a news release Tuesday, MoveOn announced its support for Badey, an attorney and chairman of the Radnor Democratic Committee. The organization described Badey as a champion for the middle class - "standing up to Big Tobacco and working to protect the rights of Florida voters after the 2000 election." About 92 percent of the MoveOn members backed Badey in an endorsement vote.

"I am honored to have the endorsement of MoveOn," Badey said in a prepared statement. "Together we will make sure the wealthiest should pay their fair share of taxes, Washington politicians should stay out of women's reproductive health decisions, that Medicare will never be turned into a voucher, nor Social Security turned over to Wall Street."
