Today, Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele and Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason were joined by Republican candidates for statewide office, including U.S. Senate candidate Pat Toomey and Lt. Governor candidate Jim Cawley as well as Congressional Candidate Tom Marino at a press conference unveiling our strong Pennsylvania ticket and strategy heading into the November elections at the Southeast PA Victory Office.
Chairmen Steele and Gleason as well as members of our great PA GOP ticket released the following statements:
PA GOP Chairman Rob Gleason — “As Chairman of the Republican Party of Pennsylvania, I am honored to stand with Chairman Michael Steele and the RNC as we reaffirm our commitment to the strongest Republican ticket we have ever fielded. Our ticket led by U.S. Senate candidate Pat Toomey and Gubernatorial candidate Tom Corbett, will help us usher a new class of strong, principled leaders in both Washington, D.C. and Harrisburg. With qualified and experienced Congressional candidates like Lou Barletta and Tom Marino, I am confident Pennsylvania Republicans are going to have a lot to be excited about this November.”
RNC Chairman Michael Steele — “The entire ticket of Republican candidates in Pennsylvania is truly impressive. Thanks to the hard work of Chairman Gleason and the Pennsylvania Republican Party, we’re poised for victory here in November. The RNC is committed to helping win these critical races to restore common-sense leadership and fiscal accountability to Harrisburg and Washington, D.C.”
U.S. Senate Candidate Pat Toomey – “I am very confident about Republicans’ prospects for victory in the state of Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania taxpayers have made it clear that they are fed up with the runaway spending, the staggering deficits, the taxpayer-funded bailouts, and the new tax increases at both at the federal and state level. Our Republican candidates are making the case for returning our country and our state to fiscal responsibility and commonsense reforms—that message will resonate with Republicans, Democrats, and Independents in the fall.”
Lt. Governor Candidate Jim Cawley – “Our Commonwealth is on the wrong track and that is why people have lost faith in their government. Tom Corbett and I are part of a Republican team that believes to get on the right track we must cut government spending, lower taxes and allow small businesses to grow our economy.”
Congressional Candidate Tom Marino (PA-10) – “Today, I am proud to stand with my fellow candidates as we all say with one voice: We need to bring the sanity back to our government. From Chris Carney’s and other Washington liberals support of the stimulus bill to their obsession with instituting government-run health care in this country, it has become abundantly clear that Democrats in Washington have forgotten what it means to put the best interests of their constituents ahead of their own party leadership. I am excited to stand with so many qualified Republican candidates who share my commitment to reforming government.”
