Career Politicians

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

It’s no secret that career politicians are tearing our country apart. They elevate crass ambition, vulgar discourse, and personal gain. They take words out of context and twist them to fit their own narrative. They’re inauthentic, ineffective, and out-of-touch with the voters they represent.

We have seen this in Susan Wild. She says one thing at home in the Lehigh Valley and votes the complete opposite in Washington, DC. She claims to be bi-partisan but supports Joe Biden 99% of the time.

Now we’re seeing this same behavior from my GOP primary opponent, Ryan Mackenzie. For months, Ryan has been launching personal attacks against me and I’ve largely ignored his silly routine. I’ve always focused on running a positive campaign that touts my own experience and relevant credentials. But recently, he’s been going after my family, my volunteers, and my supporters. It’s time to respond.

  • Ryan tells GOP voters he’s “America First” and expresses his unfailing loyalty to Donald Trump. But Ryan’s campaign is buoyed by Americans for Prosperity – a Super PAC with no fundraising or spending limits that supports amnesty for illegal immigrants, opposes tariffs on China, and was working throughout the GOP primary to defeat Donald Trump. Career politicians will do anything to get elected.
  • Ryan routinely attacks my military service and calls me nicknames that disparage our men and women in uniform. But while Ryan was safe and sound at New York University, I was fighting Al Qaida in the Middle East. And while he was enjoying life in Boston at the Harvard Republican Club, I was ducking into bunkers in Afghanistan. Career politicians don’t understand real sacrifice but have no problem impugning military veterans if they think they can score political points.
  • Ryan touts his record in the state legislature as evidence of his conservative achievements. Yet, he voted to make Pennsylvania a sanctuary state for out-of-town abortion providers. And he was a leader in passing Act 77, the law that gave us no-excuse mail-in ballots. Act 77 has done more damage to Republican candidates than any other law in a generation, but Ryan said he would vote for it again. Career politicians can never admit when they’re wrong.
  • Ryan Mackenzie has never served in the military and never held a private-sector job. He has been a legislator for 12 years and worked in politics his entire adult life. Yet he touts himself as “feared by the establishment.” Career politicians like Ryan are the establishment.

I’m disappointed that I had to write this note. I find no need to respond to Ryan’s juvenile provocations against me. But when he attacks my family, my volunteers, and my supporters, he’s also attacking you, the voters. I need to speak up.

The last thing we need in Washington is another career politician looking to further his own ambition at the expense of us taxpayers. You deserve better.

What we need is someone with real-world experience who will go to Washington, get the job done, and return home. That’s what our Founders envisioned, and that’s exactly what I will do.

Keep America Free.
