Army vet­er­an Kev­in Strouse (D) is one of three House can­did­ates in the Phil­adelphia area ac­cused of be­ing a car­pet­bag­ger. Strouse, who is chal­len­ging Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick (R), served in the Army be­fore work­ing as an ana­lyst for the CIA in Wash­ing­ton. He moved to his dis­trict last year.

Strouse’s cam­paign, re­fer­ring to his mil­it­ary ser­vice, re­spon­ded to Fitzpatrick’s at­tacks by of­fer­ing “to have a con­ver­sa­tion about who has done more to serve our coun­try.”

Phys­i­cian and Navy vet­er­an Man­an Trivedi (D) still does not live in his dis­trict and has taken cri­ti­cism for most of his in­come com­ing from Wash­ing­ton. And in New Jer­sey, Bur­l­ing­ton County Free­hold­er Aimee Bel­gard (D) has poked fun at former Ran­dolph May­or Tom Ma­cAr­thur (R) for re­cently mov­ing to the dis­trict. (Phil­adelphia In­quirer)
