  1. The good news is that Shapiro will crush Mastriano by so much there won’t be any need to audit the votes.

    1. Lol yes it’s the tactic Claire McCaskill used in 2012. It’s much easier to win the general election when you pick your opponent.

  2. Barletta’s loyalty to Trump tossed aside. Not only the second in Congress to support Trump before 2016, chaired his PA campaign which put Trump over the top and at Trumps urging gave up his secure congressional seat to run for Senate vs Casey even though his grandson was fighting cancer and brother dying. That’s loyalty, but Trump doesn’t care about that. He backs the election fraud guy bc it best aligns with Trumps current narrative. Many Republicans in PA know this and hate it.

  3. Charlie Gerow campaign really took off like a go cart going down hill with no wheels!

  4. Incredible how much money McSwain’s supporters wasted. Didn’t any of the donors try having a conversation with him first? You would think the political donor class wouldn’t donate to candidates less charismatic than damp cardboard…

    1. Corman had to be the biggest waste on this list. All that money and he polled poorly throughout his campaign

      1. Agreed. I guess he had a war chest saved up from years in the General Assembly.

        The quality of GOP candidates this time was pathetic. An incredible loss in a year when we actually could have won.
