HARRISBURG — Today, Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Val DiGiorgio released the following statement on Bob Casey’s support of Planned Parenthood outlined in his blog post published by The Huffington Post:
“Bob Casey woke from his slumber to find that the Democrat party is now a far left party. In a desperate attempt to protect his left flank, Bob Casey has abandoned his father’s pro-life legacy once again. He has traded his father’s legacy of supporting life for the support of Planned Parenthood, Democrat party bosses, and D.C. special interests like the Center for American Progress.
“In an effort to keep his progressive base intact, Bob Casey is reinventing himself as an aggressive progressive and leader of ‘the resistance.’
“Don’t just take my word for it, Cassie Owens and Anna Orso of Billy Penn recently asked ‘What turned US Sen. Bob Casey into an aggressive progressive all of a sudden?’ Pennsylvania voters will hold him accountable at the ballot box for his hard turn to the left and for abandoning his not so firmly held principles.”
