Harrisburg, Pennsylvania – Joe Miller, the 2010 Republican Nominee for the U.S. Senate from Alaska, today endorsed Marc Scaringi’s campaign for the U.S. Senate from Pennsylvania.
Miller noted the impressive sweep of the last election cycle, where Republicans picked up 5 new Congressional seats and Pat Toomey won his bid for the U.S. Senate. He said, “The people of the Keystone State recognized that the future of our country is at stake, and business as usual is unacceptable.” He said of Scaringi, “Marc also believes, as Ronald Reagan did, that in this present economic crisis government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.” Bob Casey, on the other hand, believes in Big Government solutions. Miller noted that Casey is among most liberal Senators serving in Washington and in fact has voted with Barack Obama 97% of the time.
Scaringi thanked Miller for the endorsement, saying his campaign looked to capture some of that “Miller Magic” in his bid for the U.S. Senate. Scaringi called Miller “a true American Patriot” who exercised not only courage on the battlefield, but political courage by taking on the “biggest name in Alaskan politics for the last three decades.” He said of Miller’s race “Last year people from all over the country, including me, watched with fascination and excitement – your race to unseat a political dynasty in Alaska,” He added, “A Murkowski had held that seat for the previous 30 years, and you a citizen-candidate came from 30 points down” less than two months before the Election to become the Republican nominee, “truly an amazing David and Goliath story.” Scaringi went on to say politicians who support the status quo have led this nation to the edge of bankruptcy and that is what Bob Casey is. Scaringi said, “Pennsylvanians are a common sense people, and they realize the direction Washington is taking us in is not working.” He proclaimed that it’s time to “stop the Obama-Casey Agenda in its tracks.”
