Republican Primary Positive Campaign Pledge

Dan Meuser has released the following statement urging his fellow Republican candidates to join him in signing the Republican Primary Positive Campaign Pledge.

To date, only Republican Congressional candidate has joined Dan in signing the pledge.

“I believe it is critical to the people of the 11th Congressional District that each candidate pledges to run positive, robust, fact-based primary campaigns,” Meuser said. “Campaigns can be difficult, but the voters deserve campaigns focused on our records, not lies and misrepresentations. Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Val DiGiorgio has asked each Republican candidate seeking office in 2018 to abide by President Ronald Reagan’s 11th Commandment and not speak ill of any other Republican during the Primary Election. I agree and that is why I believe it is imperative we each take this pledge.

“I applaud congressional candidate Andy Shecktor for joining me in pledging to run a positive campaign and I urge the other candidates running for U.S. Congress to join us. We can’t allow negative campaigning to take our focus off what is truly important... moving President Trump’s agenda forward and taking on Nancy Pelosi and the extreme liberals trying to sabotage our country.”

Nearly three weeks ago, on Friday, November 17, 2017, each Republican candidate was mailed a copy of the pledge to review and sign. To date, Dan Meuser and only one other candidate have signed the Republican Primary Campaign Pledge and have committed to running positive, fact-based campaigns.
