  1. What became of the esteemed Sam DeMarco? He announced
    His candidacy for Congress in the 17th District, but never filed petitions according to PoliticsPa. What a fraud!

  2. All the Dems are better than all the GOP. Scott Perry should be in jail and barred from Congress as a traitor.

    1. Sounds like you have a little bias there, my friend. Take a breath of fresh air, the weather is nice today.

  3. Democrats seem very happy to nominate 1 career politician for Governor right now, but I don’t think they’re reading the political environment very well. I think Americans are kinda fed up with these pipeline politicians who have never worked an honest day in their lives.

  4. Ding Dong Doug is an Insurrectionist and is likely prohibited by the Constitution from seeking elective office.

    1. Would you care to know that most voters don’t care if we have a dictator or a president, as long as their entertainment isn’t negatively affected, their ability to worship is maintained, and their cost of living/taxes don’t go up?

      These are the thoughts I keep in mind when I door knock, around my precinct, so I know to keep voters interested in keeping the republic.

  5. Hmmm surprised to see the Dem Lt Gov candidate Austin hasn’t submitted his signatures yet. He’s who the party wants next to Shapiro

  6. Still think Gov R nomination is between Lou and Mastriano. Corman is floundering with high priced campaign help. This cycle for sure is a Trumper’s to lose in Gov race. 15 to 20 point lead by Lou and Mastriano over Corman should tell folks a lot about where the R’s are these days.

    1. I door-knocked for Congressman Smucker, myself for committee, and Charlie Gerow for governor. I can say without a doubt that if the race really is between Mastriano and Barletta, Mastriano will win that primary. I haven’t met a single in person Barletta supporter.

      1. Me either. Well, I live in Delaware County, Dave White’s home county. Honestly, this race is up in the air, given the still high number of undecideds in the race. A good indicator of where the race is headed are the debates. There are a few more gubernatorial primary debates left for the Republicans, and you should watch them closely.

        1. Yeah if Charlie dropped (and based on the importance of his endorsements I highly doubt it) White or McSwain would likely be the runner ups for me, there are too many undecided voters for the race to be in anyone’s hands.

          1. McSwain is a solid candidate. Not flashy but he would make a competent Governor.

      2. Lou is very popular in NEPA. The Governor race is very regional right now. Dave White in SEPA, Mastriano in South Central, Lou in NEPA are the 3 frontrunners. McSwain has a broader coalition throughout.

        If Mastriano wins, we lose in November.
