Senator Pat Toomey announced today that he is supporting the Chester County Chair’s statewide effort.
“As we consider the future of the Pennsylvania Republican Party, our State Committee must make the important decision of choosing our next Party Chairman,” Toomey writes. “I would like you to know that I strongly support Val DiGiorgio as the next leader of our Party. I have worked closely with Val for years and I know him to be an energetic, smart and extremely talented individual who has had countless election triumphs in an important swing county. Val has repeatedly done the hard, grass roots work as a county chairman that has resulted in Republican victories, including my hard-fought 2016 victory, in his big, competitive, suburban county.”
“I know that Val has the experience to lead our party into a critical election cycle and will make it a priority to ensure our party is successful not just in 2018, but also in the critical 2017 judicial and county elections in which our recent history has been mixed,” he continued. “I also know something else. The responsibility of electing a new State Party Chairman is yours and that of your colleagues on the committee. I know that you and your colleagues take this responsibility very seriously and I will work hard and closely with whomever you select. I am sharing with you my enthusiastic support for Val because, as Pennsylvania’s only statewide, elected official, and having just gone through perhaps the toughest successful statewide race in America, I thought you might wish to consider my perspective on what it takes to win.”
The election for the position will take place at the party’s annual winter meeting in Hershey on Feb. 4th.
