WILKES-BARRE TOWNSHIP, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — The race for the PA U.S Senate seat in Pennsylvania is intensifying with the Primary Election now only four days away.
One of the most closely watched races in the nation is the U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania. Many political analysts say whoever wins the seat can alter the balance of power in Washington.
One of the leading candidates vying for the Republican nomination, Dave McCormick held a campaign rally in Luzerne County and he brought along some high-powered GOP support.
The race for the GOP nomination is tight, and each of the three leading candidates is doing what they can to convince voters that they should take the fight to the Democrats in November.
Friday, Texas Senator Ted Cruz stumped for McCormick.
Dave McCormick brought in republican heavy hitter, Senator Cruz to Luzerne County for a standing-room-only rally at the Wilkes-Barre Township Fire Department.
McCormick is in a neck-to-neck race with Mehemet Oz and Katy Barnette. With only four days to lobby for votes, all three candidates are pulling out all the stops.
“I think voters are asking three questions, who shares their conservative values? Who can win? And who’s going to go to Washington and on day one be able to undo the crisis were in. On inflation on energy war that has been happening under the Joe Biden administration Ukraine and China,” stated McCormick.
McCormick says he is a true American conservative and will face what he calls a crisis in the nation head-on.
“The inflation challenge we have is Joe Biden’s inflation. He created it. We need to stop excessive spending there’s been a high spike in spending under this president in our history. We need to unlock energy. The energy problem we have is a direct consequence of Biden’s policy that has us, energy-dependent. Driving up the price of fuel is another part of inflation. We need pro-growth economic policies-deregulation,” said McCormick.
Cruz is stumping for McCormick, a candidate he says is a true conservative.
“This race in Pennsylvania matters, it matters for the whole country, I’m supporting Dave McCormick because he is the strongest conservative who could win. I know dave for a long time I know him personally I trust Dave,” stated Ted Cruz.
The latest polls wow very little separation between Oz, McCormick, and Barnette. Political observers, we spoke with say these last days will make or break their campaigns
