Pa. Dems Launch New Video After Wagner Gets Nod From Bannon
During an event in St. Louis, Bannon gave Wagner a shoutout during his speech.
“Scott Wagner’s endorsement by the leader of America’s Alt Right movement, Steve Bannon, should be no surprise,” Pa. Dems Communications Director Beth Melena said in a statement announcing the video.
The video uses clips from WHP, describing the Bannon’s support for Wagner, then cuts to an audio clip saying that Brietbart’s website, which Bannon ran before joining the Trump campaign, is a “favorite of extremists and white nationalists.”
“Right wing Scott Wagner’s endorsement by Steve Bannon proves that he is far too extreme for Pennsylvanians,” Melena said.
Videos like this are used mainly to help fire up the party’s base, and to gain earned media coverage.
Update: Wagner’s campaign responded by turning the tables, and putting the pressure on Governor Tom Wolf.
“I think the PA Dems should spend less time worrying about who is supporting Scott and more time worrying about what a failed Governor Tom Wolf is. Pennsylvania state government is falling apart all around Governor Wolf, and all he and his cronies in the Democrat Party want to talk about are national issues,” Wagner campaign manager Jason High said.
