GENERAL ELECTION - November 3
FROM THE PA DEMOCRATIC PARTY:
The fight for free and fair elections amid a global pandemic is escalating quickly here in PA.
FIRST, Governor Wolf and a bipartisan coalition of legislators passed mail-in voting in PA, and our Vote By Mail campaign helped over one million Democrats vote from home in the PA Primary.
THEN, Donald Trump and PA Republicans got scared. They sued to throw out votes and make mail-in voting harder this fall.
NOW, we're taking the fight right back to them, with a countersuit of our own and the biggest voter protection team PA has ever seen.
Voter suppression is a cornerstone of Donald Trump's reelection strategy because Republicans know the easier it is for people to vote, the harder it is for them to hold power.
They'll do everything they can to disenfranchise PA voters, and their efforts will be very well funded by billionaires, big business, and special interests.
PLEASE REMEMBER THIS ON NOV. 3rd!

12TH DISTRICT CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE HOSTS VIRTUAL TOWN HALL SERIES
Sunbury, Pa. -- Lee Griffin, Democratic Party candidate for Congress in Pennsylvania's 12th District, plans to host several virtual town halls throughout the month of August. During the events, Griffin will familiarize himself with voters and discuss policy.
The events are open to the public and will include opportunities to ask questions and meet state candidates who are also running in the district.
When asked why he is running for Congress and what this election means, Mr. Griffin had this to say:
“We are at a singularly pivotal moment in our country’s history, and this moment requires us all to participate in it. This year we don’t just decide who is in office; we decide who we are as a people. We can choose to reject the messages of hate and division and show that we, as Americans, will stand by each other through times of crisis and times of ease. The future is ours if we work together and put policy over politics, and consider the concerns of the people of the district before what is happening in D.C.”
When Griffin refers to "Policy over Politics," he refers to stepping away from treating political parties like sports teams and instead focusing on goals for the United States to strive for like economic stability, nondiscrimination, and safe communities.
“I count myself lucky to be born an American. Our American ideals of freedom and opportunity should come as a birthright, but for many Americans who are of different sexual orientations, races, religions, genders than me, those ideals don’t come so easily," added Griffin. "I plan to represent everyone in the district, not just those who look like me or agree with me.”
During previous Town Halls in Juniata, Lycoming, Sullivan, Potter, Perry, Clinton, and Snyder Counties, Griffin answered questions about a range of topics including healthcare, education, COVID-19 recovery, jobs, the economy, criminal justice reforms, and climate change.
Upcoming online events will take place via Zoom on these dates beginning at 7 p.m. and are intended for voters in specific counties:
