Former mayor and congressman Lou Barletta, leading Republican candidate for governor of Pennsylvania, today announced the formal endorsement of Congressman Dan Meuser (PA-09). Meuser is the latest in a growing number of key endorsements coalescing behind Barletta's campaign over the last 48 hours including: Senate Pro Tempore and former gubernatorial candidate Jake Corman, former Congresswoman and gubernatorial candidate Melissa Hart, Congressman Fred Keller, former US Senator Rick Santorum, former governor Mark Schweiker, former Lt. Governor Jim Cawley, Senate Majority Whip John Gordner, Senator Tommy Tomlinson, Senator Bob Mensch, Senator John DiSanto, Representative Kurt Masser, and Representative Doyle Heffley, amongst others.
“We’ve all seen the mess that Gov. Wolf created and we know that Josh Shapiro would certainly make it worse,” said Congressman Dan Meuser. “We have a chance as Republicans to correct course and accomplish great things for the people of Pennsylvania, but only if we nominate a candidate for governor who can win in November. Lou loves Pennsylvania and is the only candidate who has a plan for what Pennsylvania can be. I am pleased to endorse Lou Barletta, who is the one Republican who can unite the party and bring home victory in the fall.”
