State Rep. John Taylor has accused some in his own party, the GOP, of trying to destroy it. In a letter to Republican Committee People, Taylor asks party members to vote for incumbent City Commissioner Joseph Duda.
After that, Taylor criticizes Duda's opponent, Al Schmidt, for trying to tear the party down.
This year, Taylor writes, Duda is "opposed by a candidate who belongs to a group that only cares about their own agenda. They have no interest in the people of Philadelphia or the Republican Party. Their campaign has consisted of vicious, mudslinging tactics filled with falsehoods and personal attacks. We all know that the true objective of these reckless, self-serving people is to destroy the Republican Party. The only way to stop them for good is to defeat them on Election Day."
Taylor did not offer any specifics.
