Barletta hits 44 counties, travels 18,855 miles in first months of campaign

Barletta travels equate to driving from Hazleton to Los Angeles seven times

Former mayor and congressman Lou Barletta, the leading Republican candidate for governor of Pennsylvania, has run an energetic grassroots campaign since announcing his candidacy in May, racking up 18,855 miles traveled within the Commonwealth. Barletta has visited 44 of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties, held 201 individual events, and gathered the endorsements of local leaders in 40 different localities.

“We are running the greatest grassroots campaign in Pennsylvania history,” Barletta said. “People are tired of the direction the Commonwealth is headed, tired of the dictates from Harrisburg, and are hungry to have their freedoms restored. When I’m governor, we will return common sense to the state capitol.”
