#BrendanBoyleing: A PhillyClout call for entries

We told you yesterday about a new federal political action committee, Building a Better PA, which is now running television commercials supporting state Rep. Brendan Boyle's bid for the open 13th District U.S. House seat.

Building a Better PA is an independent expenditure organization, which means it can raise and spend unlimited funds as long as it does not coordinate with a candidate's campaign.  The PAC uses in the commercials some of the video Boyle, a Northeast Philly Democrat, made publicly available on his campaign YouTube channel.
