HARRISBURG – Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason released the following statement today regarding Democratic Congressional candidate Mark Critz’s fundraiser with extreme liberal Speaker Nancy Pelosi:
The Republican Party of Pennsylvania has questions for Washington insider Mark Critz:
1. Would you vote for Nancy Pelosi to be Speaker of the House?
2. You're bringing anti-coal Vice President Joe Biden to Western Pennsylvania to help you raise cash, when is Speaker Pelosi coming to the district?
3. Nancy Pelosi has referred to the job-killing, energy tax legislation, known as Cap & Trade, as “transformational legislation which will take us into the future.” Do you agree with her that imposing an energy tax that will crush small business and cost jobs is in the best interests of the 12th Congressional District? (POLITICO, 6/28/09)
“Actions speak much louder than words and Mark Critz’s willingness to accept the endorsement of a big-government, extreme liberal like Nancy Pelosi says volumes about what kind of Congressman he will be,” Gleason said. “As a Pennsylvanian living in the 12th Congressional District, I know that the strong family values that we, Republicans, Democrats and Independents, share in this part of southwestern Pennsylvania are far different from those held by Nancy Pelosi.
“I was always taught that you can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep, and I believe that Mark Critz’s close association with Nancy Pelosi, a person who has come to represent everything that is wrong with Washington, D.C., proves that he is not the right candidate to represent our best interests in Congress.”
