Torpey Sutton Rematch?

In House 29 John Sutton has started a campaign committee to run for House 29 as a Democrat – again.


He lost to Rep. Noel Torpey last year (53.7% to 46.3%).  The district is heavily Democratic, about a 60-40 Dem district.  But Torpey still won re-election through a combination of hard work, affability and strategic middle-of the-road positions, especially on labor issues.


Torpey, however, did support the tax cut bill, HB 253, so we’ll see if Dems can parlay that proposal’s unpopularity with the education establishment into a more fruitful campaign this cycle.
