Former mayor and congressman Lou Barletta, Republican candidate for governor of Pennsylvania, today announced the formal endorsement of State Representative Jonathan Fritz (R- Wayne/Susquehanna County): “I have known Lou Barletta for many years, he is a friend to me and a true friend to Pennsylvanians," said Representative Jonathan Fritz. "He has a heart of gold and a strong patriotic spirit. His qualifications are impressive. I have given this decision a lot of thought, and the choice is clear - Lou Barletta is the right person to be Pennsylvania’s next governor.” “I am honored to have earned the endorsement of Representative Jonathan Fritz," said Barletta. "Like myself, Representative Fritz is a former mayor with vast experience in the private sector who understands the value of limited government and individual liberty. Pennsylvanians are ready to turn the page on Governor Wolf's tyrannical rule and restore common sense back to the Commonwealth. I look forward to continuing to work closely with Representative Fritz on important issues such as restoring Pennsylvania as a global leader in energy dominance and getting Pennsylvania back to work."
