Sen. Doug Mastriano, R-33, announced Friday he is forming an exploratory committee for potentially entering the 2022 race for Pennsylvania governor.
“Running for a statewide office is no small undertaking,” Mastriano wrote in a press release. “It will take a strong grassroots movement to restore our state from the damage done to it. From the fireside chats, to the Gettysburg hearing, we have stood together through a dark period in Pennsylvania history. We remember Gov Wolf’s draconian rules that shut down your businesses, sent Covid positives into nursing homes that resulted in thousands of tragic and unnecessary deaths. Wolf declared many jobs as ‘non-essential,’ and then issued contradictory mask requirements on you and your children. And now, many are facing job loss and an uncertain future with vaccine mandates.”
