A politician from Bucks County is now faced with a challenger from his party, who has become known for his stances on a major issue. Brittany Gibson wrote about the politician and the challenger for Politico.
Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick, a Bucks County native, is considered to be one of the most bipartisan members of Congress. As one of 18 Republicans who represents a district that President Joe Biden won in 2020, he has worked with members of both parties to vote on major issues that affect the American people.
Coming out of Bucks County is also Mark Houck, an anti-abortion activist that was recently acquitted of charges related to an altercation at an abortion clinic. Houck, who is running for Congress for the first time, is bringing the contentious issue to the forefront of his campaign.
“The child doesn’t deserve the death penalty, and the reality of it is, we are further victimizing the mother,” Houck said in an interview with 1210 WPHT. “And, so, once we start recognizing that, we’ll realize that rape and incest is not a good excuse to terminate a human being.”
While spokespeople from a super PAC do not believe this will be a main issue that Fitzpatrick will focus on, the issue is becoming more and more debated and will most likely have an impact on votes for upcoming elections.
