Former Whitehall Twp. official Daniel McNeil leads votes to replace Brennan on Nov. ballot

Local Democrats have put their support behind a candidate to replace a troubled state lawmaker on the ballot in November.

Lehigh County Democratic Chair Rick Daugherty says former Whitehall Township official Daniel McNeill has received the most votes Sunday to take Joe Brennan's spot.

The vote will now be sent to a state committee.

Brennan was officially removed from the Democratic race for the 133rd district seat last week.

He has been charged with assaulting his wife and driving under the influence.

Whoever is chosen will face Republican candidate Dave Molony.
