UNITED STATES SENATOR MAKES STAND IN 163RD
BOB CASEY ENDORSES VINCE RONGIONE FOR STATE REPRESENTATIVE
DREXEL HILL – With less than three weeks to go in the election, Vince Rongione received the endorsement of the senior Senator from Pennsylvania, Bob Casey. Senator Bob Casey is the highest ranking official to support Rongione and has made a career out of fighting for Pennsylvania’s priorities.
“Please come out and vote for Vince this coming election day. Vince will be a strong voice for the 163rd district,” Senator Casey said.
“As your next state Representative in the 163rd, Vince Rongione will work with Tom Wolf to put middle class families first. Both of Vince’s parents were teachers so he knows the value of investing in our schools so that our children will learn more now so they can earn more later. Vince Rongione and Tom Wolf will fight to lower the tax burden for seniors and small business owners.”
Senator Casey won the 163rd district in 2012 by over 4,000 votes showing wide popularity among Democrats, Republicans, and Independents. Casey has also endorsed Tom Wolf for Governor.
“It’s an honor to have the backing of our Senator,” Rongione said. “This endorsement is about shared Pennsylvania values and his confidence in ideas that will help protect our schools, create jobs, and strengthen the middle class.”
Vince Rongione is a Drexel Hill resident who grew up on Darby Road in Havertown. He is a graduate of Manoa Elementary, Haverford Middle and Haverford High School. Rongione has also earned degrees from Villanova and Villanova School of Law. He worked as an aide to Admiral Joe Sestak and also served on Capitol Hill as the Communications Director to Congressman Chris Carney. Rongione is the youngest of three children, a proud uncle and godparent with five nieces and nephews. He is engaged to be married later this year.
