The BIPAC Action Fund announced its endorsement of Marty Nothstein for his campaign to the U.S. House of Representatives in Pennsylvania's 7th congressional district on June 29, 2018.
Growing up in a working-class family in Lehigh County, Nothstein learned early that hard work is the best way to chase a dream. Marty’s father ran a car dealership and a trucking company, and his mother raised their children before working as a retail clerk to help make ends meet.
As a teenager, Marty worked multiple jobs to help the family and support his dream: an Olympic gold medal in cycling.
One of the most respected competitors on the international circuit, Marty raced for the U.S. Olympic team in Atlanta in 1996, bringing home a silver medal and a hunger for the top prize. He would not display that medal until he could put a gold medal beside it.
A principled conservative who grew up with a deep sense of fiscal responsibility, Marty put those principles to work as county commissioner. In just two years, he helped restore and expand the county’s retirement home for the elderly and cut taxes on homeowners.
In addition to his public service and work as a small businessman, Marty owns and works a family farm, carrying on the agricultural legacy of the 7th District.
