Verona, PA - Former Republican Presidential Candidate and Chairman of Patriot Voices Rick Santorum announced today that Patriot Voices PAC has made endorsements in some Pennsylvania races. The endorsements are: David Freed, Candidate for Attorney General; John Maher, candidate for Auditor General; and Diana Irey Vaughan, candidate for State Treasurer.
Rick Santorum said, "I am pleased to announce these endorsements in several key races in Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania has a number of strong candidates running for local and state offices, and these endorsements today are just a few of them. Patriot Voices PAC looks forward to making an impact on these races with our call-from-home program and our 72-hour Strikeforce effort to help with voter turnout."
Rick Santorum, Chairman of Patriot Voices PAC, issued the following statements about each of these candidates:
"David Freed is a seasoned prosecutor who will serve the people of Pennsylvania well as our next Attorney General. As a long time prosecutor and the DA of Cumberland County overseeing more than 4,000 cases per year, David understands what is required of this office. He has the kind of forward-thinking approach and the tenacity that will serve the office of Attorney General well. We look forward to supporting him in the weeks ahead."
"John Maher is an outstanding candidate for Auditor General. He has the much-needed experience of being a CPA that will offer him the ability to step into the office of Auditor General and hit the ground running to make sure government agencies are spending their taxpayer dollars properly and efficiently. Patriot Voices PAC applaud John's commitment to fighting waste and fraud, and we are eager to help his candidacy in the upcoming weeks."
Diana Irey Vaughan:
"I have known Diana for many years, and she is a committed public servant. A long time Washington County Commissioner, she has been a responsible steward of the taxpayer - something critical to becoming Pennsylvania's next State Treasurer. Patriot Voices PAC is pleased to support to her candidacy."
In addition, Patriot Voices PAC announced last week its support of Tom Smith for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania.
