How Much Will Trump Impact Pennsylvania’s 2022 Races?

How much influence will former President Donald Trump have on Pennsylvania’s high-profile races in 2022? Will he endorse a candidate for governor? Will there be a Trump rally boosting a U.S. Senate candidate? Will Democrats try to tie every GOP candidate to Trump — and if they do, will it help or hurt?
In the latest episode of the PoliticsPA Podcast, Muhlenberg political scientist Chris Borick and Politico reporter Holly Otterbein talk with host Tom McGrath about what November’s election tells us about Trump and how much clout the former president does — or doesn’t — have heading into next year’s election.

You can listen to the podcast on Apple, Spotify and most major podcast platforms.

  1. Trump pissed on our beloved Constitution when he arranged for and led an insurrection attempt on the USA on January 6th, 2021 – therefore he is a “domestic enemy” of the United States. Any candidate who seeks or receives Trump’s support is a de facto “domestic enemy” of the United States and is not a legally acceptable candidate for any elected office in the United States because they have already violated the Oath of Office for any elective office which states “I will protect… from any enemy foreign or DOMESTIC….”.

  2. Trump will impact the race by helping the worst possible GOP candidate win the primary and lose the general election.

    1. Trump will impact the race by helping the BEST possible GOP candidate win the primary and WIN the general election.

      1. Bob-

        Sorry. You are completely wrong. Trump will advocate for whoever helps his long term well being.
        His help will tarnish a candidate in a general and make them unelectable.
        Hes too selfish to stay out. He may even torpedo people with an endorsement if they don’t play his game.
        If you don’t understand how toxic he is and what a piece of crap he is, point your finger at your eye and run into a wall.

  3. 1) Pennsylvania isn’t a “border state”
    2) People seeking seeking asylum and refugees aren’t “illegals”.
    3) Children transported by their parents committed no crime themselves.
    4) PA already holds immigrants in terrible facilities that are cruel and should be shutdown.
    5) Immigrants being held are going to start getting vaccines.
    6) Jesus would take in and care for immigrants.
    7) Give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.
    8) We do have outlets with the truth. You should try watching them instead of right-wing propaganda.

    1. 1) Pennsylvania IS a “border state,” noting how Brandon is disseminating INVADERS throughout the Continental USA.
      2) People seeking seeking asylum and refugees ARE illegals,” for they BREAK THE LAW when entering without following legal procedures.
      3) Children transported by their parents committed no crime themselves, but they still don’t have the RIGHT to remain [particularly “children” who are actually adults…and sometimes criminals].
      4) PA already holds immigrants in terrible facilities that are cruel and should be shut down; if so, they should be DEPORTED IMMEDIATLY upon apprehension.
      5) Immigrants being held are going to start getting vaccines; they are disseminated without either being tested or vaccinated, yielding the inevitable conclusion that BRANDON is the #1 SUPER-SPREADER.
      6) Jesus would NOT take in and care for immigrants; from Abraham to Jesus, the “stranger” has been respected but has NOT been reflexly retained within the Hebrew Community.
      7) Give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free AS LONG AS THEY FOLLOW LEGAL DUE-PROCESS, particularly economic-invaders.
      8) We do have outlets with the truth. You should try watching them instead of LEFT-wing propaganda.

  4. Why isn’t the media reporting on the effect of Open Borders? Illegals who are not vaccinated and no background check get to pick the American city of their choice, be taken there at taxpayer expense, given food, shelter, education and health care.

    But American citizens are being ordered by Biden to wear masks and get vaccinated? And pay the bills for the illegals!

    If Trump did what Biden is doing the Pelosi Schumer dog and pony show would be front and center every day and the media talking heads would have a field day.

    Good thing we have social media and outlets for the truth.

    1. Frankly, you need to use your TV remote to switch off Faux News, Newsmax, OAN and watch the Yule Log station for the rest of the month. It’s obvious whatever you’ve been watching for the last decade has changed your brain cells to dog sh!t.
