I've worked for Kelly and he is the exact definition of a used car sales men. Someone you probably wouldn't trust. Porter sounds the most in touch, but concedes he probably won't win. That's the problem. I know Kelly is a bum and however he get elected in the first place is beyond me.

Any sliver of trust was gone when he pushed to rig the game, so he and his wife could earn a few more million off their oil holdings.

When the Republican Party apparatus smacked down Kelly for using his position to push legislation to enrich himself you realized that he is only in it for himself and his heiress wife.

Kelly is a straight shooter, whether you agree with him or not. Missa Eaton has no substance. Porter is a nut who advocates eugenics. Result: Erie Times endorses Kelly- what else could they do?

Official press releases boast of Rep. Mike Kelly's defense of the coal industry and his desire to increase domestic mining, while disclosure forms show that he and his wife also own several shares in PC Exploration, a mining company formerly owned by Exxon subsidiary XTO Energy. Kelly's wife earned between $10.1 million and $50.2 million in 2011 in capital gains from natural gas stocks. Meanwhile, he is a member of the Natural Gas Caucus and Marcellus Shale Caucus, and supports further natural gas exploration.
Kelly also has stakes in an investment vehicle called the Ivy Global Natural Resources Fund, which holds stocks in a mixture of companies in oil, gas, and mining -- industries whose interests Kelly regularly espouses.
Kelly even posted a misleading statement about his interest in a given piece of legislation. Kelly's office, in a press release attacking a "burdensome" regulation on car dealerships, said: "Prior to his service in Congress, Rep. Kelly was the owner/operator of Mike Kelly Automotive..." The press release does not mention that he still owned the dealership during his service in Congress, at least up to Dec 31, 2011, and earned up to $2 million from the business last year.

Right on. These loser democraps saddled us with fools like Kathy Hairspray Dahlkemper, a Nancy Puke-olsi clone. What these democraps spout should be totally disregarded. The are the evil of today's world.
