“We Have to Have A Fresh Perspective”
Incumbent Democrat U.S. Representative Allyson Schwartz is running for a second term in the 13th District against Republican Raj Peter Bhakta.
The 13th District includes Northeast Philadelphia and the majority of Montgomery County.
Friday night the two candidates presented their views at Foulkeways‚ a retirement community in Lower Gwynedd.
Schwartz spoke first with Bhakta presenting second; the candidates were on the stage one at a time.
Each had five minutes to give an opening statement‚ about a half hour to answer the same questions from the audience‚ and five minutes to close.
