DNC Chair Perez and former Gov. O’Malley Make Rounds in PA

Making investments.

Over the last week, DNC Chair Tom Perez and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley made several stops in Pennsylvania to promote the candidacies of several Democrats and the DNC investment into the state.

The DNC announced it is investing more than $595,000 in Pennsylvania for organizing races from the school board to the Governor’s race, with a “specific emphasis on engaging and investing in African American, Puerto Rican and Latino, and rural communities”, according to a press release from the DNC. O’Malley’s visit this past weekend, included making stops in the suburbs of Philadelphia to canvass with multiple women vying for state house seats and congressional candidates, Chrissy Houlahan (PA-6) and Madeleine Dean (PA-4).

On Wednesday, Perez joined lieutenant governor candidate John Fetterman and 6th congressional district candidate Chrissy Houlahan for a canvass kick off in Reading. On Thursday, Perez participated in a “Seat at the Table” event, a listening and training tour “for and by black women” with the intention of giving a chance of influencing the DNC, in Pittsburgh.  

The Pennsylvania GOP believes the tour made by national Democrats in PA is a sign that they are on the defensive.

“The attention given to Pennsylvania by national and out-of-state Democrats shows just how worried they are about the unpopularity of their message in Pennsylvania and their statewide incumbents losing in November,” said PAGOP Communications Director, Jason Gottesman.

He also went on to tout the current state of the economy as reason the GOP feels confident. “Just today, Gallup released a poll showing Democrats now favor socialism over capitalism,” Gottesman said. “Their message and continually catering to the far-left wing of their Party does not resonate with moderate Pennsylvanians.”

Perez expressed a much different tone in multiple interviews with different media outlets from across the state.

In an interview with WESA, Perez discussed the victory of Conor Lamb and other various special election races across the country as motivation for November.

“We’re organizing everywhere, we’re investing everywhere, and I’m seeing excitement everywhere,” Perez said.

    If Fetterman, Houlahan and the rest of the Liberal Insiders want $15 minimum wage numbers, then why in the world did Chrissy Houlahan outsource all of her manufacturing to Chinese sweatshops where she paid her workers $0.35/hour while they ate “pig slop”. Seems to me that she is speaking out of both sides of her mouth no?

    This charge is real folks. Look it up for yourself from China Labor Watch. Houlahan is not who you think she is. Her background has A MILLION holes in it including nepotism through her husband, who hired her and gave her raises every step of the way. Bart, being a loser himself, actually wrote a communist manifesto and tried to get it published. This is allllllll very real.

    The DNC doesn’t seem to know that there aren’t school board races until next year.

      Trump isn’t on the ballot dbag. Has nothing to do with Trump. Has everything to do with Sleeping Bob and OneTerm Tom sitting on their hands for their entire terms and not getting anything done. The voters of this state aren’t dumb, they can see right through their crap.

    Not sure why they brought Mayor Carcetti out for a canvass in Philly. But hey, why not?
