“As impressive as Todd’s record is as a State Representative, his prosecutorial experience is what truly sets him apart,” said Roddey, the chairman of the Allegheny County Republican Committee and a member of the Republican State Committee.
“One of the things we have a responsibility to do is nominate candidates who can win the general election and implement our values,” Roddey continued. “We need an experienced conservative leader as our nominee for Attorney General. That is why I am supporting Todd Stephens.”
“Jim Roddey is a highly respected Republican leader in southwestern Pennsylvania and I am honored by his endorsement,” Stephens responded. “I know that Jim takes his responsibility to vet candidates for endorsement very seriously and appreciate his assessment that experience counts in the Attorney General’s race and my experience as a prosecutor is the right fit for Pennsylvania Republicans.”
Stephens is running against State Sen. John Rafferty in next year’s GOP primary for Attorney General.
