Some of the top names in the Pennsylvania Democrat Party will be at the St. Clair Fish & Game this weekend stumping for the local slate of candidates in the upcoming Municipal Primary election.

Current Pennsylvania Lieutenant Gov. John Fetterman and State Rep. Brian Sims are the headliners at the Schuylkill Democrat Candidate Jamboree. The event is Saturday, May 8, and the slate of state-level candidates will start arriving at around 2:45 p.m. It runs until 7 p.m.

Fetterman will be joined in St. Clair by two other candidates hoping to secure a blue seat for Pennsylvania in the US Senate in 2022, current State Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta, and Alexandra Khalil. Sims is running for Lieutenant Gov. of Pennsylvania in 2022.

Sims made news locally when he accused State Rep. Jerry Knowles, without evidence, of saying he was acting like a “little girl” on the floor of the State House. Knowles denies saying this. Instead, he said he chastised Sims for doxing and harassing teenage girls protesting outside a Philadelphia abortion clinic, which did happen.

Also at Saturday’s fundraiser will be Judge Maria McLaughlin, a candidate for Pennsylvania Supreme Court, Timika Lane and Jill Beck for PA Superior Court, as well as State Sen. Sharif Street and Alex Reber.

In addition to stumping for themselves, they’ll also be trying to drum up support for the Democrat slate of candidates in the 2021 Municipal Election. The party Primary Election is May 18. Locals at this Saturday’s event include Joe Groody, the Sheriff candidate; Mike O’Pake, who’s currently unopposed in his re-election campaign for District Attorney, and county court judge candidates Jim Conville and Julie Werdt.

      I agree. The state candidates are pathetic socialist left wing Fuhrer Wolf followers.

      I don’t know why? Going to see Fetterman and Sims is like going to a Stalin/Lyin Biden rally.

    Some of the local Dems are good people but as far as the state and nationally, the DEMS are socialist communist leftists. Fetterman and Sims would fit in better at the Kremlin than at a Schuylkill County rally. With the exception of the local candidates, none of the rest of this field is worth a penny.

    Fatterman and Slims look like a crime duo from an episode of The Blacklist
