Eight GOP members of the Pennsylvania congressional delegation today endorsed Doug Mastriano for governor of the Commonwealth.
The joint endorsement came in a letter signed by Dan Meuser (R-Luzerne), Scott Perry (R-York), Lloyd Smucker (R-Lancaster), Fred Keller (R-Northumberland), John Joyce (R-Blair), Guy Reschenthaler (R-Allegheny), Glenn Thompson (R-Centre), and Mike Kelly (R-Butler).
“… (W)e are proud to endorse Doug Mastriano for Governor of Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania’s families are struggling to put gas in their cars and food on their tables. Progressive policies supported by Joe Biden and Josh Shapiro have led to fewer jobs, higher crime rates, rampant drug addiction, and less freedom for Pennsylvania’s hard-working families … Doug Mastriano’s passion for life, freedom and liberty make him the clear choice for our next Governor.”
“I am grateful and humbled to receive the endorsement of these great champions of liberty and prosperity,” said Mastriano. “I look forward to working with our Congressional Delegation and making our commonwealth a place where the people are free and the economy is thriving. We will be strong partner for change in Pennsylvania.”
One Republican member of the delegation did not sign the statement – Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Bucks).
James Singer, spokesperson for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, called on those GOP candidates running for congressional seats to make their preference known as well. “GOP candidates for Congress need to stop hiding their support for Doug Mastriano and tell Pennsylvania the truth.”
