Corman said Christiana is “the right man to represent Pennsylvania in Washington” in a statement announcing his endorsement.
“I’m proud to endorse Jim for a U.S. Senate seat,” Reed said.
Both Corman and Reed both touted Christiana’s leadership in Harrisburg in their endorsements.
“In Harrisburg Jim Christiana has been a skillful leader with great instincts driven by strong conservative principles. I fully expect that he will prove equally impressive in Washington,” Corman said.
“Jim has proven his effectiveness as a leader in state government. I know he will make a huge difference in Washington,” Reed added.
Christiana thanked both of them for their endorsements saying he is “honored” and “thrilled” to have their support.
Christiana has already received the endorsement of state House Speaker Mike Turzai earlier this year.
The endorsements will likely help Christiana build support within the party and make inroads with the donor networks of Corman and Reed, which will be important in his bid for Senate.
Congressman Lou Barletta and businessman Paul Addis are both running for U.S. Senate as well.
