HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason released the following statement regarding Katie McGinty will challenge Joe Sestak in the Democrat primary for the U.S. Senate.
“Establishment Democrats have finally found someone who’s willing to run against Joe Sestak,” Gleason said. “For months, Democrats have publicly raised concerns about Joe Sestak’s ability to win a statewide election. After multiple rejections by other possible candidates, Democrats’ best hope to take on Sestak is a candidate who came in last in the gubernatorial primary.
“With McGinty’s lack of accomplishments including her role in creating the current budget crisis, and their own pariah Joe Sestak, it looks like Democrats are stuck with a terrible choice between two lackluster candidates in next spring’s primary.”
