That's one question I asked congressional candidate Sam Bennett during a lengthy interview at the HamFam in May, and I probably should have asked the same question during Lehigh Valley Congressman Charlie Dent's two hour session today.
Unlike Bennett, Dent allowed me to record the interview, which gave him no wiggle room. There were thirty-nine detailed questions, and some were borderline unfair. Charlie answered every one of them, and then some. As a matter of full disclosure, I started out as a Dent supporter. After the interview, I am more convinced than ever that he is by far the best choice. Anyone who considers Dent an "empty suit" is in for a very rude awakening.
Tomorrow, I will begin posting Charlie's replies. Because of the detail involved, I will do so in several posts for the different topics discussed. I wish to thank Congreessman Dent for the time he took to answer some tough questions. You will see a detail-oriented, intelligent, focused and reflective Congressman who takes his job very seriously.
No matter what our policitcal affiliation, we're all very lucky to have him.
