On an election day that’s being hailed as historic for its upsets, a Silicon Valley crowdfunding startup called Crowdpac helped a candidate for the Pennsylvania House beat an incumbent.
Temple adjunct professor Chris Rabb, the state House candidate who defeated the Northwest Coalition’s Tonyelle Cook-Artis, was originally recruited to run on Crowdpac. After being tapped, Rabb asked his friends on Facebook for support, and got pledges of financial support from more than 100 people. Afterward, Rabb decided to officially announce his candidacy.
You may remember Crowdpac as the startup that was eyeing U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah’s seat in Congress. Fattah lost the primary to State Rep. Dwight Evans.-30-
