The fight for small government, controlled spending and individual freedom is what lies at the heart of the 2012 Pennsylvania U.S. Senate Republican Primary, and it has essentially come down to basically three candidates: Steve Welch, Tom Smith and Sam Rohrer.
Welch is a former Republican, turned Democrat, turned Republican again to run for Senate. While a Democrat, he voted for President Barack Obama and contributed to Joe Sestak's campaign. He has no political experience, is a moderate and is owned and operated by the establishment. No thank you.
Smith was a life-long Democrat until he switched to Republican just late last year just so he could run for Senate. He has no political experience and refuses to debate his opponents. What he does have is a huge bank account.
He recently purchased a $500,000 luxury tour bus that gets little more than 1 mpg, painted his face on the side of it and is touring the state like a rock star. His idea of fiscal restraint is not at all appealing to me! No thank you.
Sam Rohrer, a life-long conservative Republican, is the only candidate who has proven he will stand up for what's right no matter what. He's a known fighter of special interests.
He's been fiscally tough, predictably conservative and dutifully constitutional for 18 years in the Pennsylvania House. He was consistently ranked by the PA Liberty index as one of Pennsylvania's Top Ten Friends of Liberty.
I will not vote for anyone who voted for Barack Obama, and I certainly will not vote for someone who spends money the way Tom Smith does.
I'm voting for the guy who can help turn this country around. Please join me, fellow Republicans, in voting for Sam Rohrer in the April 24 Primary Election.
