HERSHEY — The Republican Party of Pennsylvania reaffirmed its united support for Governor Tom Corbett and Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley today at its annual Summer Meeting in Hershey today.
“The Republican Party of Pennsylvania is proud to show our united support for Governor Tom Corbett and Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley,” Gleason said. “We have the best grassroots network in the country, and today’s meeting was a chance for our newly elected state Party members to show their support for Governor Tom Corbett, Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley, and our entire Republican ticket.
“While Tom Wolf and the Democratic Party are busy fighting each other, Tom Corbett and Jim Cawley have been busy creating more than 150,000 jobs. Due to the leadership of the Corbett-Cawley team, Pennsylvania’s unemployment rate stands at seven-tenths below the national average.
“I would also like to personally thank Governor Tom Corbett, Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley, U.S. Senator Pat Toomey, Congressmen Glenn ‘G.T.’ Thompson and Mike Kelly and State Representative John Taylor for taking the time to speak to our new state Party members and ensuring that our new state Party members had a wonderful introduction to the Party.
“The Republican Party of Pennsylvania stands united and eager to get to work to re-elect Governor Tom Corbett, Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley, and our entire Republican ticket this November.”
