In WUWF's continuing visits with Pensacola-area candidates, we spoke with Philip Ehr, who’s seeking the Democratic nomination in the 1st District Congressional race in his first run for public office.
First of all, there’s this little matter of party affiliation. For nearly four decades, Ehr was a Republican.
“I registered in a closed primary state – in my case Maryland – at 18 years old and went with the Republican Party for various reasons,” said Ehr. “Family tradition, some cultural issues; and I stuck with it through my service in the Navy.”
