PA-8: NRCC Hits Santarsiero On Legislative Record
The National Republican Congressional Committee is launching a website aimed at PA-8 Democratic nominee Steve Santarsiero.
The website, entitled 7yearsoffailure.com, prominently displays the number of days the State Rep. has been in office, currently over 2700, and the number of bills the state representative has signed into law, which is currently none.
The site’s logo features Santarsiero’s name in print with a letter Z emblazoned in the center, changing the reading to “Santarzero.”
“It’s no wonder that Steve Santarsiero was called out for lying when he was touting his legislative accomplishments because the truth is that he doesn’t have any legislative accomplishments despite being a Harrisburg politician for over seven years,” NRCC Spokesman Chris Pack. “Steve Santarsiero thinks he deserves to be a federal lawmaker even though he hasn’t passed a single law in his seven-plus years as a state ‘lawmaker.’”
Pack is referring to a direct mailer the Santarsiero campaign sent out last month during the Democratic primary. He literature, which stated that the legislator “wrote PA’s gun safety law” was rated false by Politifact Pennsylvania.
Santarsiero is running against GOP nominee Brian Fitzpatrick, an ex-FBI agent and younger brother to incumbent Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick.
The 8th Congressional District represents all of Bucks County as well as parts of upper Montgomery County.
