Dent, Mackenzie Party Subdued by Presidential Returns
It was clear early on in the evening that Charlie Dent and Ryan Mackenzie would win but the celebration party was dampened by disappointing presidential returns.
The celebration party for Republicans Charlie Dent and Ryan Mackenzie at the Holiday Inn in Fogelsville was packed with supporters who were happy for their candidates but hesitant to celebrate as returns rolled in for the presidential election
Speaking before the election was called for Democrat Barack Obama, Dent said, "No matter what happens tonight, we are going to have to get spending under control.
"If we get this right we can have bright days ahead and I think we can get it right," Dent said. "If we get it wrong then we have a future of debt, doubt and despair - take a good look at Europe, that will be us."
