All but one Pennsylvania House GOP members endorse Mastriano for governor
[thehill.com]

Eight of nine Pennsylvania Republican congressmen on Monday jointly endorsed Trump-backed GOP gubernatorial nominee and state Senator Doug Mastriano.

Reps. John Joyce, Fred Keller, Mike Kelly, Dan Meuser, Scott Perry, Guy Reschenthaler, Lloyd Smucker and Glenn Thompson signed a letter saying Trump-backed Mastriano “represents a better option and alternative” to the Democrat’s nominee, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro.

“Progressive policies supported by Joe Biden and Josh Shapiro have led to fewer jobs, higher crime rates, rampant drug addiction, and less freedom for Pennsylvania’s hard-working families,” the lawmakers wrote.
-
Mastriano and Shapiro are fighting for the governor office being vacated by Gov. Tom Wolf (D), who has reached the state’s term limit.

A group of former Pennsylvania Republican officials — including former Rep. Charlie Dent, a former lieutenant governor and a former state Supreme Court Justice, among others — endorsed Shapiro last month.

Dent called Mastriano “an extremist who is a threat to the rule of law and the constitutional order.”

“Progressive policies supported by Joe Biden and Josh Shapiro have led to fewer jobs, higher crime rates, rampant drug addiction, and less freedom for Pennsylvania’s hard-working families,” the lawmakers wrote.



Unemployment at the end of Trump (Jan 2021) was 7.5%. Current unemployment rate is 4.5%, within 0.2 percent of lowest over the last 20 years. And still heading down.

Republicans depend on low-information voters.

The only thing I can't easily dispute is "higher crime". It might be higher or it might not--I can't dispute it because I don't know off the top of my head.

None of the other stuff even needs to be looked up.

Fox has Shapiro up by 10+ points, although I always wonder how much of this is purely "motivational" on their part. Still, he's up in other polls, although by much less.
