As you cover Josh Shapiro’s announcement today regarding his candidacy for the Democrat nomination, please consider the following statement from the Republican Governors Association:

“Throughout the pandemic Josh Shapiro has stood by Tom Wolf and his failed Covid policies that endangered Pennsylvania seniors, crushed the economy, and left the Keystone State with an unemployment rate well above the national average,” said RGA Spokesperson Chris Gustafson. “It’s no wonder Shapiro is the Democrats’ hand-picked candidate, who else will carry on the failed policies that have left the commonwealth behind? Voters are eager for change and look forward to electing a Republican governor next fall.”
