“The people of the 9th Congressional District, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and states across the nation have made their voices heard, and I join them in supporting Donald Trump for President,” said Congressman Shuster. “Donald is a private sector business leader who knows what it takes to get things done – and that is something that Washington desperately needs. Donald also shares my passion for economic development, including making sure our nation’s infrastructure meets the needs of our citizens. It’s time for our party to unite behind Donald Trump and focus our time and energy on defeating Hillary Clinton.”
“I am proud today to have the endorsement of Congressman Bill Shuster,” said Donald Trump. “As the Chairman of the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, Bill Shuster knows what it takes to make our economy work again. As one of the leaders of the Pennsylvania Delegation, I welcome Bill’s leadership and vision to our team. Bill is a strong conservative voice in Congress, and together we will rebuild our infrastructure and deliver on the promise to Make America Great Again.”
With Shuster’s endorsement, Trump moves closer to obtaining the amount of delegates needed to secure the Republican nomination. In addition to retaining his congressional seat earlier this week, Shuster was also elected as one of the three delegates from his district.
The 9th Congressional District consists of all or parts of Bedford, Blair, Cambria, Fayette, Franklin, Fulton, Greene, Huntingdon, Indiana, Somerset, Washington and Westmoreland Counties.
