Endorsed Republicans File With Nearly 25,000 Signatures

Team Earns Strong Showing of Grassroots Support Throughout Pennsylvania

HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason released the following statement congratulating our endorsed statewide Republican candidates for filing thousands and thousands of signatures.

“In a tremendous show of grassroots and volunteer support, Steve Welch for U.S. Senate, David Freed for Attorney General, John Maher for Auditor General and Diana Irey Vaughan for Treasurer successfully filed thousands and thousands of petition signatures this afternoon, the first step towards the long road to victory in November. By shattering the signature requirements, it’s clear our endorsed team heads into the Primary and General election with a strong base of support throughout Pennsylvania.

“This accomplishment belongs to our volunteers — our State Party members, county chairmen, committee members and activists who make up the foundation of our rock-solid grassroots network upon which we build our successful campaigns. I think each and every one who helped in this process for their tremendous efforts.”
