Former State Senator Robert Robbins, as well as his wife Cindy, is endorsing Rafferty’s campaign for Attorney General.
“As a former State Senator and former Northwest Caucus Chair and a longtime supporter of the Republican State Committee, we are writing to you today to urge you to support our longtime friend John Rafferty for Attorney General,” they write in an email to state committee members obtained by PoliticsPA.
“John also understands what it means to lead,” they conclude. “The Attorney General’s office needs not only an accomplished leader, but it needs a strong manager. John will clean up the Attorney General’s office and get back to the important work of keeping Pennsylvania safe.”
Robbins represented the State Senate’s 50th district from 1991 to 2013. It includes all of Crawford and Mercer counties as well as parts of Erie and Warren. Additionally, from 1983 to 1990, he was a State Representative in Northwest PA.
This letter is further evidence that State Sen. Rafferty is focusing his efforts on securing the party’s endorsement early next year.
Rafferty is running against State Rep. Todd Stephens in the 2016 GOP AG primary.
