Lentz hires former aide to Sestak and Carney


State Rep. Bryan R. Lentz, Democratic candidate for Congress in the 7th District, has hired a campaign manager who in 2006 helped elect the man Lentz hopes to succeed, U.S. Rep. Joe Sestak (D.,Pa.).

Vincent A. Rongione was deputy finance director for Sestak, instrumental in building up an early warchest in the race to unseat then-U.S. Rep. Curt Weldon (R.,Pa.). Later that same year, Rongione took over the fundraising operation for Democrat Chris Carney's ultimately successful campaign in the heavily Republican 10th District. He managed Carney's reelection campaign last year, and has since been working as communications director in Carney's Capitol Hill office.

Lentz announced the hiring today, praising Rongione's "excellent track record both on Capitol Hill and on the campaign trail."

 Born and raised in Delaware County, Rongione graduated from Haverford High School, Villanova University and the Villanova School of Law.
