💫AZ, you must make sure @SenMarkKelly keeps his seat in Nov. His opponent is a ChristoFascist & against everything Democracy stands for. He has also done great things for your state & listens to your needs. Stand with Capt. Kelly. He stands for you.

The #PASenate primary was a good one for Democrats. Fetterman has a unified party and electorate behind him, plus statewide appeal. Trump's random Oz hug showed the limits of Trumpism. Even with Trump's endorsement he got less than a third of the vote.
Also Trump's favorite Madison Cawthorn not just lost the race, but also conceded!! Who knew MAGA folks could actually concede elections? 🤭🤭

Remember I'd said a couple of months ago how primaries are going to show the limits to Trumpmania, even if media inflates it constantly.
If you look past the media narratives & compulsive right wing gazing of the beltway folks, it's been evident since 2020 the America is just not that into Trump anymore. Nor is the GOP electorate, beyond a point. Not that he ever won 50% of the vote in either.

.@Kathy4Truth responds to @SiriusXMPatriot question about 2015 tweet, stating "Pedophilia is a cornerstone of Islam." Why is tweet still up? #PASenate #PASen
If you look at tweet, it's 'Not even a full sentence.' There's more to follow. It was put in my face, tell us what you meant 8 years ago. It's not a full thought. Media has taken an incomplete thought and taken out of context and provided their "own context." #PASenate #PASen
"Today, I believe that God has created us equal. And that everyone has value and dignity. As a Christian I believe the word of God to be true." #PASenate #PASen

@TheOfficerTatum @Kathy4Truth 13 months ago she declared her run for Senate, not 100% sure but I believe even earlier than McCormick and Dr Oz whom were the front runners.

@TheOfficerTatum @Kathy4Truth March 2022

The 5 candidates from 50,000 feet all look and sound decent. People have been distracted by COVID, Fauci, Biden, lockdowns, masks, Rona stuff, Ukraine, Inflation etc.

McCormick leads.
@TheOfficerTatum @Kathy4Truth McCormick gets backing by Ted Cruz, Pompeo, Sean Parnell others.

As a businessman and Military Veteran pretty solid.

So I am covering the GOP PA Senate debate and the candidates are being asked to define America First and OMG.

Oz is claiming that the reason Trump was so successful is because --wait for it--RESPECT. Oz says Trump respected everyone.
Now they are all talking about the 2020 election being stolen.

Let's all take a journey and see what ARPA funds are being used for in some of the States for K-12 education according to plans submitted by each State's Department of Education.

What the @PASenateGOP did yesterday in not seating @SenatorBrewster is a miscarriage of justice and democracy - and yesterday was just our FIRST day of the 2021-22 session.

We should be alarmed about what they plan next. Here's why ⬇️
Legislative Republicans have shown no regard for the other branches of government.

They ignored court rulings, including the PA SUPREME COURT's ruling that affirmed @SenatorBrewster's victory. The judiciary doesn't matter to them.
When @JohnFetterman disagreed with their management of the #PASenate floor, they stripped him of his authority to preside over the body. The executive branch doesn't matter to them.

I don’t think that yesterday’s fracas in the #PASenate is quite as straightforward as either side would make it out to be (shocker, I know). The politics are for others to analyze, but just a few points on the law. (THREAD 1/29)
Off the bat, it’s worth noting that what distinguishes this from the Trump mayhem is that there is a pending legal challenge that deals with enough votes to be dispositive of the election result depending how the court rules. That was not the case in any state for Trump. (2/29)
That doesn’t necessarily justify the GOP’s actions yesterday, but it is not an apples-to-apples comparison to say this is mere Trumpianism. (3/29)

Today, I opposed the nomination of Senator Jake Corman to President Pro Tempore.

I do not do this lightly, but I feel very passionately that he is not suited to this role.
The President Pro Tempore is to be a leader for the entire body – not of one party.

No where in the Constitution does it say that the leader should be beholden to the partisan whims of his own party.
However, in his short time in this pinnacle leadership role, he has shown an unwillingness to recognize that there are more members of this chamber than just those with an R behind their name.

It is turning ugly very quickly in the #PaSenate. The Republican majority trying to remove Lt. Gov. Fetterman from the rostrum, presiding over the chamber.
At the hear of the dispute is the GOP majority's decision to refuse to seat a Dem senator. Read story here: spotlightpa.org/news/2021/01/j…
Republicans are voting to replace Lt. Governor Fetterman because they believe he is not recognizing the Republicans.

“To have this kind of stuff going on at the 11th hour is unconscionable. So we have a totally lack of faith in her ability to do her job and to do it fairly.” - #PASenate Majority Leader @JakeCorman calling for the resignation of PA Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar.
“There wasn’t anything new with the issue of ‘naked ballots.' To send out new guidance at 10:30 at night on the eve of the election is because clearly the secretary was concerned about the results that were coming and she needed to tip the scale in a different direction.”
“Never before in my time in the legislature have I seen a Department of State act in this way. Acting contrary to Democrat Supreme Court Justice Max Baer, who wrote the majority opinion that this was an issue of the legislature.” @JakeCorman

What’s happening on #PAHouse floor right now is crazy. Speaker runs SB613 to override Gov & force open virtually all businesses right now. All Ds vote no. We file amendments to give all essential workers hazard pay, PPE & paid sick leave if they are infected. Rs block those votes
Watch the debate for yourself right here: house.state.pa.us/Video/HouseVid…
This debate on SB613 is a matter of life and death: @SecretaryLevine announced 1,146 new coronavirus cases in PA today alone. 25,345 Pennsylvanians have tested positive for COVID-19. 2,228 have been or are currently hospitalized. 584 people have died in our state.
