For the second time in two weeks, the battle over the debt ceiling will play out in front of U.S. Rep. Charlie Dent's office.
A group of Northampton County Democrats plans to rally in front of the congressman's South Whitehall office Friday afternoon at 3:30.
At the same time, an organization called Easton for Obama, which formed during the 2008 election, will present a petition to Dent, a Republican whose district includes the Lehigh Valley.
Earlier this week, to criticize cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security as ways to deal with the debt-ceiling crisis.
Easton for Obama says it has gotten about 120 people to contact Dent's office to ask the congressman to negotiate on the debt ceiling. The petition -- which makes the same request -- has more than 300 signatures, the group said.
