PA DEMS CHAIR STATEMENT FOLLOWING PENCE’S VISIT TO WESTMORELAND, SOMERSET COUNTIES

PENNSYLVANIA – Pennsylvania Democratic Party Chairwoman Nancy Patton Mills released a statement following Mike Pence’s visit to southwestern Pennsylvania: 

“Mike Pence’s visit was nothing more than an attempt to distract from the fact that the White House still doesn’t have the coronavirus under control. As we head into the fifth month of this crisis, there’s still no national testing strategy, frontline workers continue to face PPE shortages, and the administration keeps pushing schools to reopen in the coming weeks without providing guidance on how to do so safely. Even worse, Trump and Republicans in Washington are now proposing large cuts to unemployment for everyday workers while funneling billions to large corporate donors. We deserve leaders who put our health, safety, and economic well-being before their personal politics. Pennsylvanians will remember Trump and Pence’s failed, ineffective leadership in November.”
