Harrisburg, Pennsylvania — Politics PA writes that Marc Scaringi, candidate for theRepublican nomination to the U.S. Senate from Pennsylvania, turned in the best performance at the Pennsylvania Business Council’s Republican U.S. Senate Candidates Debate this past Friday, December 9. The debate took place in New York City in conjunction with the annual Pennsylvania Society Meeting.
Concerning Scaringi’s performance, Politics PA observes:
“Standout Moment: He showed his chops when he blasted Welch for his position on climate change.”
“How He Did: Scaringi had a very strong debate. It was clear he knows the issues, knows a variety of ways to criticize Casey along with President Obama, and was even ready to take on his primary opponents.
Final Grade: A.” Read entire article here.
Scaringi was the only candidate to receive an “A” for his performance. Campaign Communications Director Randy DeSoto stated, “Marc put in a strong performance at the Pennsylvania Business Council debate. He has the right message for our state at this point in our history. The Obama-Casey Agenda is bankrupting our country, and it’s time to return to the bedrock constitutional principles that made our nation the freest and most prosperous in the world.”
Tom Fitzgerald of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Jim O’Toole of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and Colby Itkowitz of the Allentown Morning Call posed the questions to the candidates during the debate. The moderator was PBC President and CEO David W. Patti. Seven of the nine candidates seeking the Republican nomination to the U.S. Senate were present including Scaringi, Steve Welch, Sam Rohrer, Laureen Cummings, Tim Burns, David Christian, and Robert Mansfield.
Scaringi also recently won the Blair County Republican Women’s Straw Poll.
