SIGN UP FOR ANNOUNCEMENTS
They could win by default, but that’s not good enough.
In a year when Republicans are operating in such an enviable political environment, why aren’t their U.S. Senate candidates holding big and impressive leads? Why does it look close? Why are party professionals getting worried?
The Democratic president is unpopular. What progress can be claimed in the economy is tentative, uneven, feels temporary.

Looking back on where Pennsylvania was four years ago, it would have been hard to foresee where we are today and the bright future we have ahead.
Four years ago, we faced many challenges. We were spending more than we had and paying for it on the backs of taxpayers. Unemployment was 8.1 percent, businesses were leaving for other states and our public school system had been gutted under the guise of one-time federal stimulus money from Washington.
Even our capital city was burdened with debts and on the brink of bankruptcy.
Pennsylvania desperately needed to change direction, and you, the voters, trusted me to shake up Harrisburg’s status quo and build a stronger future for our next generation.

On Nov. 4, vote to keep Pennsylvania Republicans Keith Rothfus (12th District), Bill Shuster (9th), Mike Kelly (3rd) and Lou Barletta (11th) in the U.S. House.
Representing his constituents admirably, Mr. Rothfus, of Sewickley, deserves a second term. He favors reducing taxes and regulations, repealing ObamaCare and increasing domestic energy production. Challenger Erin McClelland, a Harrison Democrat, supports dubious “pay equity” legislation (there are ample laws already on the books), parrots other liberal talking points and brags of her union endorsements.
