PA GOP Chairman’s Update – April 28, 2019

Dear supporters, friends, and those interested in the Republican Party of Pennsylvania:

Once again, Pennsylvania is at the center of the 2020 world and, after a busy week, I am more energized than I have ever been to re-elect President Donald Trump.

The highlight of the week was a meeting I attended with our Vice-Chair Bernie Comfort, National Committeeman Bob Asher, and other Pennsylvania Republican leaders with the President’s re-election team.

There, we continued the work of implementing a plan we believe will be successful in getting President Trump re-elected. We will continue partnering with the RNC and the re-election to hire staff throughout the state, use micro-targeted data to get the message about the President’s successful first term out to the right voters at there right time, and organize down the neighborhood level to ensure we have an all-out effort to keep Pennsylvania red for the President.

This week, the need to keep Donald Trump in the White House for four more years became even more evident with the announcement by former Vice President Joe Biden that he will be joining the crowded 2020 field of radicals and socialists seeking the Democratic nomination for President.

As I told numerous news outlets this week, Joe Biden helped President Barack Obama oversee the worst economic recovery following a recession in this country’s history.

On top of that, he 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.

With Biden planning to come to Pittsburgh on Monday, I will continue to lead the effort in speaking out about how a Biden Presidency would return this country to some of its least promising days.

With the great news on Friday about the President’s continued success for this country’s economy—3.2% economic growth in the first quarter of 2019—we literally can’t afford to return to the Obama-Biden days.

If you missed it, I discussed Biden’s 2020 announcement and the effort to get President Trump re-elected with 1210 WPHT’s Dom Giordano this week. You can listen to that HERE.

Also this week, I was happy to speak out on behalf of victims rights and against Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner who has once again completely abdicated the function of his office, putting doubt in the minds of victims and families left behind by violent, murderous criminals like Mumia Abu-Jamal.

Krasner recently decide to not fight Abu-Jamal’s grant of a new trial over his conviction for killing Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner.

Instead of fulfilling a prosecutor’s obligation to stand up for the voiceless, protect law-abiding citizens, and put the worst of society away, Larry Krasner has instead decided to politicize his office and side with defendants over victims.

It’s instances like this that make us all aware of the need to elect people who take their roles seriously, particularly when it comes to law and order and standing up for victims.

That’s why I was glad to see our Superior Court team of Cumberland County Judge Christylee Peck and Chester County Deputy DA Megan McCarthy King be profiled in the news this week.

I encourage you to read about them and why they are running for Superior Court. If you want to help support their candidacies, please feel free to donate HERE.
