Chester Daily Local
Republican U.S. Senate candidate Tom Smith rolled through the borough Sunday morning where he spoke to a group of supporters before making his way to Paoli on his final swing through Southeast Pennsylvania before the election.
“We’ve got a great race and we’ve got momentum,” Smith said to a group of residents and political notables on Church Street in the borough. “Please keep it up and in three days we will be able to say America is not done yet.”
Smith is challenging Democratic U.S. Sen. Bob Casey Jr. Early polls showed Casey with a significant lead which has closed as Nov. 6 creeps closer. Smith credited the increased support to the people of the commonwealth who have worked hard for his campaign and spreading the word.
“It is I who need to thank you and I wholeheartedly thank you for everything you have done,” Smith said.
Chester County Sheriff Bunny Welsh said she is extremely excited for this race as the gap between candidates closes.
“Not only did he close the gap but they are neck and neck,” Welsh said. “When people say why should we support Tom Smith, I say it’s because he is the real deal running for the right reasons.”
Welsh credited Smith’s experience as a self-made farmer, coal miner and business man as to why he is the right for Pennsylvanians.
