Reschenthaler, Saccone Take Shots in PA-14 Primary

The Republican primary in the 14th Congressional district is off and running with state Sen. Guy Reschenthaler (R-Allegheny) and state Rep. Rick Saccone (R-Allegheny) trying to brand each other’s campaign. 

In an interview with KDKA Reschenthaler went after Saccone for his loss in the special election in the 18th Congressional district.  

“He embarrassed everyone in southwestern Pennsylvania with the last campaign,” Reschenthaler told KDKA

“He not only lost. We squandered $11 million, and the Democrats have turned the tide on Republicans. This loss had national ramifications, and it all started with the debacle that was this last election.”  

Reschenthaler rehashed some attacks used against Saccone in the special election, including his use of per diems in Harrisburg.  

“I’m a conservative, I’m an Iraq war vet, and I’m a new voice for Washington.  My opponent is none of those things. I’m a leader. He’s a career politician. I refuse to take per diems. He’s taken over $400,000 worth of per diems. The distinctions are clear. I’m the way ahead. He is not.” he said.  

Saccone told the Tribune Review that Saccone is buying into a “false narrative” created by Lamb.  Ahead of the special election, national Republicans criticized Saccone’s campaign including his fundraising efforts.  

“I’m real disappointed that he’s decided to go negative so early.  I’ve always run a positive campaign and I will continue to do so. I think it’s clear from that interview he fancies himself,” Saccone said in response to Reschenthaler’s comments.

    Rick Saccone is authentic conservative. Reschenthaler-Ward are part of the Pennsylvania Scarnati-Corman-Turzai-Reed-DiGiorgio Establishment of incompetent opportunistic cronies and lobbyists.
    Those who like an elegant con-man to authentic grassroots candidate will choose Reschenthaler – Ward and Pennsylvania will continue its decline.
    I am a Florida resident and what an improvement. Lower taxes and better services. Not just the weather.
