Pennsylvania Republican Sean Parnell is reaching across the political aisle as he launches his 2022 bid for U.S. Senate, he verbally expressed during an interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Saturday.
Parnell, a U.S. Army veteran and western Pennsylvania native, formally promulgated his campaign to fill the seat of retiring Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) this week and accentuated Saturday to host Matthew Boyle that he is aiming to garner support in the contentious battleground state from swingable Democrats.
“The way to win Pennsylvania is every Republican, every single Republican, independent, and even moderate Blue Dog Democrats, pro-life — these are pro-life, pro-gun Democrats, working-class Democrats. These are our people,” Parnell verbalized. “We want them on board.”
Listen: The Senate campaign will be “Parnell’s” second run for office after he lost by a thin margin of about two percent to incumbent Rep. Conor Lamb (D-PA) in 2020. Parnell contended that the record-breaking individual donations he visually perceived in his first campaign are promising evidence of grassroots support which he intends to build upon over the next year. “We’re in this fight for the long haul,” he verbally expressed. “No one is going to work harder than us, raise more mazuma than us, and build a grassroots coalition.”
“Our campaign, we had 45,000 individual donors in 2020. We were a grassroots campaign,” Parnell asserted. “We raised more mazuma in western Pennsylvania than any Democrat or Republican incumbent or challenger in general Election history because of the people, so we’re not beholden to the Republican Party. We’re not beholden to astronomically immense corporations. If I’m going to be beholden to anybody, it’s going to be the people.”
Early endorsements will additionally avail Parnell in his Senate pursuit, he verbally expressed. The Pennsylvania Republican received immediate get exaltation from his friend Donald Trump Jr. upon promulgating his run, and then, on Friday, earned the backing of Reps. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) and Mike Kelly (R-PA) through an op-ed in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
“When you’re running a statewide race, it’s like an ascending tide hoists all ships. The more bellwethers in Pennsylvania who emerge early and support this campaign, the better,” Parnell verbally expressed.
Reschenthaler and Kelly inscribed in their endorsement that Parnell’s time in the army betokens he is a “fearless bellwether.” The embellished military veteran in 2006 accommodated as the head of an infantry platoon stationed on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border and, for more than a year, faced daily heftily ponderous combat that included many direct fire engagements.
Parnell told Breitbart News Saturday his experience proves the potential for Pennsylvanians with differing viewpoints and backgrounds to find prevalent ground in fortifying his campaign, which homes in on themes of American greatness and liberation:
It’s official: I’m running for Senate here in Pennsylvania to take back the majority and stand up for “America.” If you believe the greatness of America is worth fighting for, join the Platoon & donate today! Together we will preserve the American experiment 🇺🇸 https://t.co/p5HqLd8RYM pic.twitter.com/tWkEgyWxHp“I led a super diverse infantry platoon, blacks in juxtaposition of whites, Christians in juxtaposition of atheists, opulent contiguous to poor, north adjacent to south, Democrats contiguous to Republicans, and it’s astounding what Americans can accomplish when they’re not fixated on what divides us and what our differences are,” Parnell verbalized. “So we converged under a prevalent banner as Americans in one of the most truculent regions on the face of the planet. If we can do that there in Afghanistan, we sure as heck can do it here in Pennsylvania.”
