GOP Delegate Letter to GOP Lawmakers "Support the President"

(WBRE/WYOU-TV) "Support the president's agenda or we will not support you", that's the basic message contained in  letter now being sent to  Republican leaders across Pennsylvania..
   This comes amid reports that suggest that support for President Trump's agenda is fading in parts of the Commonwealth.  The I-Team's Andy Mehalshick explains.

"If they don't move forward with his agenda there is probably going to be some changes out their in the leadership" said Rick Morelli.

Morelli from Sugarloaf Township and a GOP Delegate, says he supports a letter being circulated to Republican leaders in Pennsylvania to back President Trump's "America First" agenda..

 
"So this is a message sent to delegates..the leadership in the state of Pennsylvania that we should support Trump. The fact is that they should not hold up his agenda." Said Morelli,


The letter, which reads in part:
 
 "We also find it telling our elected leadership in the U.S. Congress chooses not to support the America first effort, at least in part. Instead it offers a posture of grandstanding and legislative atrophy.."
 
  We want to say that we support Trump  and that we support the republican party. But Trump's ideas come before the party." said Morelli


 
Dr. Thomas Baldino is  a Political Science professor at Wilkes University. He says this effort by GOP delegates may prevent election battles down the road, battles he argues could cause turmoil in the republican party.

 
"What Trump would hope will happen is he will not need to resort to threatening the re-election of Republican incumbents by supporting challengers in the primary." said Dr. Baldino,

At this point in time  Pennsylvania is the only state in which party  delegates have taken action like this to support the president's agenda..
