PA GOP Nominates Donald Trump’s Slate

“This convention showed that the Pennsylvania Republican Party is putting together a statewide ticket that is as Trumplike as possible in both policy and irresponsible style,” said Pennsylvania Democratic Party Executive Director Sinceré Harris. “Scott Wagner actually refers to Trump as a ‘mini-Scott Wagner’ and Lou Barletta is running as ‘Trump’s political godfather.'”

“Wagner and Barletta will do everything they can to prove they are right-wing extremists committed to gutting Medicaid and slashing funds to our public schools. While Lou Barletta has been associating with hate groups, Scott Wagner has been using detestable and loaded rhetoric and attacking a cameraman. Pennsylvania simply cannot afford to elect candidates like Scott Wagner and Lou Barletta.”
