Where in the World Wide Web is Aryanna Strader?

A few weeks ago PA-16 congressional hopeful, Aryanna Strader, seemed to disappear from the Internet. A recent report by the Tom Murse of the Lancaster Intelligencer Journal revealed that Strader’s scarcity may be due to financial problems.

During the fundraising period that elapsed April, May and June, Strader only raised $10,287 compared to incumbent Joe Pitts’ $225,386, making PoliticsPA’s Q2 fundraising “loser” list.

The Strader for Congress campaign has spent more than triple that amount and has had to scale back to compensate.

“As I am sure you noticed, fundraising last quarter was not great. With that, I had to let a few staff members go from the campaign,” Strader told the Intelligencer.

In addition to cutting staff, Strader told PoliticsPA that she had to make updates to operations. Strader’s business website (arydanllc.com), campaign site, and campaign Facebook page all disappeared a few weeks ago, just for the campaign and Facebook sites to reappear within the last couple days. Her YouTube channel was also shut down and she stopped tweeting from August 1 until August 22 – and on that day, she only she tweeted “.”

Despite Strader’s financial woes and temporary disappearance from the Internet, she still plans to continue her campaign.

“With the support of volunteers from across the 16th district, we’re going to carry on with this campaign and that includes making appearances and debating Mr. Pitts so as to offer voters a choice between myself and the do-nothing Congress that Joe Pitts has been a part of for a very long time,” Strader said.

    What a tragedy that Joe Pitts by default is going to end up back in Congress. He should have retired a decade ago back when he was a senior citizen and now because the Dems didn’t recruit better this do nothing abortion obssessed old man is padding his federal pension while he collects a congressional paycheck, Social Security and Medicare AND a PA state pension worth 100k! Joe Pitts is a disgrace.
