Mastriano to Newsmax: Ready to Make 'Earth Shake' in Pennsylvania

By    |   Monday, 24 October 2022 02:32 PM EDT

Pennsylvania Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano has plenty of bold day one plans for the Keystone State if elected governor, including boosting the economy, eradicating fentanyl trafficking, being tough on crime, eliminating critical race theory from school agendas, and making the state energy independent.

In the meantime, however, Mastriano will get answers for Gov. Tom Wolf's administration potentially sidestepping the U.S. Supreme Court recently vacating a previous ruling to count "undated" ballots in Pennsylvania for the upcoming midterm elections (Nov. 8).

"[Wolf's preference] shows me we still have big problems in Pennsylvania," Mastriano told Newsmax on Monday afternoon, while appearing on "John Bachman Now" with hosts John Bachman and Bianca de la Garza.

Mastriano's short-term answer for fighting Wolf's attempt to certify undated ballots: Continually calling for new leadership in Pennsylvania, while making sure that every vote-counting facility on Election Day has at least one Republican watcher, and maintaining election integrity.

Mastriano — a state senator in Pennsylvania — said he is confident that Republicans already have representation in 90% of the polling precincts, with more to follow over the next 15 days.

"That's [one] way we can help short the systems," said Mastriano.

Mastriano sported a Philadelphia Phillies hat, in celebration of the Major League Baseball club securing its first World Series berth in 13 years over the weekend — around the same time Mastriano was addressing rally crowds.

"I'm very pleased with how [the campaign events] have gone," said Mastriano, while adding he's had the highest online outreach of any other Pennsylvania candidate running for office.

"Wherever we've gone, we've seen this massive movement, and I think you're going to see the earth shake, politically" on Nov. 8, predicts Mastriano.

Right now, the various media polls have Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro, the Democratic Party challenger, holding a small lead over Mastriano.

But Mastriano isn't fazed by the polls. He can sense the momentum swing coming down the stretch.

Mastriano noted how Shapiro might be vulnerable with in-state voters who typically vote Democrat, since former President Barack Obama has yet to publicly endorse Shapiro.

"It's very chilling to me that Barack Obama didn't use the opportunity to back Shapiro," says Mastriano. "All [Shapiro] can talk about is abortion, and calling me names."

Regarding Shapiro, Mastriano said, "The guy's a complete train wreck," when it comes to having a plan to confront major increases with Pennsylvania's homicide rate, fentanyl-related deaths, and carjackings in metro cities.

"Where have you been for six years? You had one job!" lamented Mastriano.
