PA GOP Statement on Joe Biden’s 2020 announcement

Thursday, former Vice President and U.S Senator Joe Biden announced he is joining the crowded field of liberals and socialists in seeking the 2020 Democratic Presidential nomination.

Biden twice unsuccessfully sought the nomination in the past. 

In response to the announcement, Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Val DiGiorgio, made the following statement:

“Joe Biden helped President Barack Obama oversee the worst economic recovery following a recession in this country’s history.

“On top of that, Joe Biden was a key adviser to eight years of a Presidency that resulted in the terrible Iran nuclear deal, turned a blind eye to Russian interference in the 2016 election, attacked religious organizations, forced unrealistic government mandates onto Americans, and pushed Americans into a health care system where they could not keep doctors they liked and are forced to pay increasing premiums.

“Joe Biden’s record offers nothing to Pennsylvanians and a Biden Presidency would return this country to some of its least promising days.”
