Josh Shapiro Political View

Josh Shapiro argues that a vote for him will be a vote for the integrity of future elections. After some legislators supported Trump’s attempts to overturn the state’s electoral college results, and as some Republicans have maneuvered to restrict ballot access in Pennsylvania, Josh says it will be essential to have a Democrat in charge.

“Being the Governor of Pennsylvania, it is a position where you can help protect our democracy from the significant threats we are facing,” Shapiro said. 

Shapiro further added, “some governors are going to find themselves in a position if Washington fails to deliver meaningful election reform where they are going to be the brick wall that has to stand to defend our democracy.”
