Former mayor and congressman Lou Barletta, leading Republican candidate for governor of Pennsylvania, today announced the formal endorsement of State Representative Dawn Keefer (R-York). Keefer's endorsement is the latest in a growing number of key endorsements coalescing behind Barletta's campaign over the last 72 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, former Congressman Keith Rothfus, Senate Majority Whip John Gordner, Senator Tommy Tomlinson, Senator Bob Mensch, Senator John DiSanto, Representative Kurt Masser, Representative Doyle Heffley, and the Columbia County Republican Committee, amongst others.
"The Pennsylvania governor’s race is getting national attention because it’s a key opportunity to reject the failed liberal policies of Gov. Wolf and President Biden,” said State Rep. Dawn Keefer. “We have a chance to accomplish great things, but as Republicans we must nominate a candidate who can bring us all together and lead us to victory in November. Lou Barletta is the best candidate to do that, and I endorse him. I encourage all Republicans to support Lou Barletta on Tuesday."
