House Republicans boost McCormick in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania Senate candidate Dave McCormick is slowly picking up help from House Republicans.

Several House Republicans — including some hardliners — expressed interest in heading up to the Keystone State to help McCormick as he faces off against Democratic Sen. Bob Casey.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) is planning a late April fundraiser for McCormick and hopes to hold events with the Pennsylvania wrestling community to raise McCormick’s profile. The two share a wrestling background.

“McCormick’s a great candidate and a wrestling guy,” Jordan told us. “We want to do some things with the wrestling community in Pennsylvania because it’s so strong. It’s the biggest wrestling state in the country.”

Rep. Dan Meuser (R-Pa.) is a surrogate speaker for McCormick and has been holding fundraisers and events for him in Washington and Pennsylvania.

“He’s running the smartest campaign that he knows how,” Meuser told us. “He’s on the right side of the policies. He’s a really hard worker and he’s a problem solver.”

Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.) told us he and other Freedom Caucus members are also open to helping McCormick.

“It’s McCormick’s campaign, so he’s going to decide what he wants and then let us know and then we’ll figure it out if it fits our profile,” Perry said.

Republicans view Pennsylvania as a possible re-do opportunity after Democratic Sen. John Fetterman handily defeated Mehmet Oz in 2022. McCormick ran for the GOP nomination that year but lost to Oz.
