Is Pennsylvania GOP Making Early Endorsements To Sabotage Working Class? — Josh Prince has informed us that the Pennsylvania Republican Committee intends to endorse state candidates for the 2024 election-cycle during state committee meeting which is happening today, Sept. 29, and tomorrow in Harrisburg.
“Never before has State Committee even considered endorsing state candidates –although they have federal candidates on a couple occasions — prior to the November election preceding the applicable election-cycle,” he said.
He said if an endorsement was to be made it would be at the February State Committee meeting.
He said that some candidates have not even announced yet, since it isn’t even the election-cycle in which they’re running.
The candidates reportedly to be endorsed are for treasurer, auditor general, and the U.S. Senate seat now held by Bob Casey.
This appears to be a plan to grease the wheels for Dave McCormick, who lost a primary battle for the Senate in 2022 to Mehmet Oz.
McCormick is widely mistrusted by Trump supporters in the state.
Prince says there is also talk of an endorsement for attorney general.
Could this be an attempt to squelch a candidacy by popular York County District Attorney Dave Sunday who stood up to the Wolf administrations’ stupid, counter-productive Covid restrictions?
Family fights are fine for political parties but smart people know that unfairness make its harder to forgive.
The working class Republicans haven’t forgotten how the Republican political class had no problem stabbing them in the back to make Democrat Josh Shapiro the governor. Note that the names at the link include former Pennsylvania GOP Chairman Val DiGiorgio and former Montco GOP boss Mike Vereb. Yeah, they supported Josh.
