PRESS RELEASE: PA GOP comments on John Fetterman campaigning with Bernie Sanders this weekend

Tuesday, John Fetterman announced on Twitter that U.S. Senator, and avowed socialist, Bernie Sanders would be campaigning with him on Pittsburgh this Sunday.

In response, Republican Party of Pennsylvania Communications Director Jason Gottesman made the following statement:

“The socialist principles of single payer healthcare and free higher education supported by Bernie Sanders and John Fetterman would come with at least a $20 billion price tag to be paid by Pennsylvania taxpayers.

“They also advocate for a total disregard for the rule of law by supporting sanctuary cities.

“The Governor has not said whether or not he denounces these extreme positions and his silence, at this point, can only be an indication of his continuing support for a massive tax increase and the reduction of public safety.

“Campaigning with Bernie Sanders is the latest indication that the Wolf-Fetterman ticket is so far to the left that they have lost sight of the moderate Pennsylvanians who are looking for a hand up, not a hand out.”
