Senators Joni Ernst and Jeff Sessions from Iowa and Alabama respectively spoke to the Pennsylvania delegates this morning at their daily breakfast. This comes after Paul Ryan, who did the same yesterday.
According to Jonathan Tamari of the Inquirer, Donald Trump Jr. made a surprise appearance this morning and brought up his past in the Keystone State.
“Pennsylvania is a place that is near and dear to my heart,” Donald Trump Jr. said. “I spent five years in boarding school in Pottstown, Pennsylvania and some of those old, industrial towns that we’re going to bring back, that we’re going to revive. When you think about it, my formative years were in P.A.”
Both Sens. Ernst and Sessions also emphasized PA’s importance.
“If we want to send Donald Trump to the White House, we have to win Pennsylvania,” Senator Sessions stated this morning. “The Republican National Convention is the beginning of the final sprint to Election Day, and I’m happy to help energize Donald Trump’s biggest supporters in the Keystone State.”
“It’s great to see so much enthusiasm for our Republican ticket among our Pennsylvania delegates,” Senator Ernst added. “This week is a celebration of our Republican Party and its values before we work to win in November.”
Both of the senators addressed the GOP delegate crowd at a Hilton Hotel this morning.
