A week from now, I hope to be watching the people of Southwestern Pennsylvania proving to all these outside folks who spent millions to buy an election that their money was wasted.
I write this to you after having spent some time in Pennsylvania talking to folks about Conor Lamb.
This special election on March 13th has attracted a lot of attention. It's amazing how much outside money from the Republicans has poured into Pennsylvania.
We're talking about $10 million in negative ads. All paid for by the biggest special interests in America.
Do you think the fat cats in Washington are spending that money to elect a Congressman who works for the people in that district? Or do you think they might be spending that money to buy a lawmaker who works for them?
Conor has withstood one of the biggest barrages of negative ads anyone has ever seen in a campaign for Congress -- and he's still standing.
And they're proving one other thing: If you're going to come to Southwestern Pennsylvania and try to steal a congressional seat, you'd better bring more than just money. Because you're going to be in for the fight of your life.
In less than a week, on March 13th, I hope to be watching the people of Southwestern Pennsylvania proving to all these outside groups that spent millions to buy an election that their money was wasted.
The people of Pennsylvania's 18th district were always going to make this decision. The fat cats weren't.
It's time for change, folks. It's time for us to make it.
