Former President Donald Trump just shook up the race for Pennsylvania’s governorship.
The Washington Examiner reports that Trump did so by issuing a last-minute endorsement of state Sen. Doug Mastriano (R).
There is no one in Pennsylvania who has done more, or fought harder, for Election Integrity than State Senator Doug Mastriano. He has revealed the Deceit, Corruption, and outright Theft of the 2020 Presidential Election, and will do something about it.
Trump added that Mastriano “is a fighter like few others, and has been with me right from the beginning, and now I have an obligation to be with him.”
Trump’s endorsement comes ahead of the Republican primary, which will be held on Tuesday.
Mastriano is considered the favorite to win the primary for Pennsylvania’s governorship. But, there is a concern that Mastriano, because of his stance on several issues, might not be able to beat the Democrat candidate come November.
It is for this reason that, in recent weeks, a number of Pennsylvania Republicans have been uniting behind former Rep. Lou Barletta (R). We have even seen some Republican candidates drop out of the running in order to endorse Barletta, the idea being that he is more likely to beat the Democratic candidate.
Trump’s endorsement now will likely guarantee Mastriano the victory in the Republican primary.
We’ll have to see how things play out after that.
